I have a laptop that was running Fedora 10 created by Linux Certified.

Today I attempted to upgrade directly to Fedora 15 (lovelock). It spun for quite a while then said I needed to reboot. Currently I sit looking at a blue screen upper left Welcome to Fedora for i686, Select Partition What partition and directory on that partition holds the installation image for Fedora? If you don't see the disk drive you're using listed here press F2 to configure additional devices. sda1 sda2 sda3 Directory holding image

I have no idea where it placed the installation image. Where would be the default or normal place?

Help. I cannot even reboot my laptop as the power reset appears frozen.

I am stuck on my Windows 7. I want off.

It's a really bad idea to update from Fedora 10 to 15. Since Fedora is a fairly fast moving distribution, we advise only using upgrades between consecutive releases. I suggest you back up all your data, and install fedora afresh.
