I don't recommend doing this. GRUB is essentially forked by the distributions in ways
that make various aspects non-interoperable. You're best off booting DVD or Netinstall
Fedora media, choosing the troubleshooting submenu and then the rescue a system option.
All that does is add rescue boot parameter, which then anaconda picks up, locates your
installed system, mounts the parts in the appropriate places. S
o then all you have to do on a system with BIOS firmware is:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
If you're doing this on a system with UEFI firmware, it's a bit different.
yum reinstall grub2-efi grub2-tools shim
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
Don't use grub2-install on EFI systems.
It does not have a UEFI firmware on it.
I did try the fedora netinstall disk on it and it can't read it , it is
showing the partitions and it is having what appears to be file system
In the Rescue mode , it locks up when it gets to the point of running
I was thinking about putting the hard Drive in my Linux PC and see if I
can check it further.
The computer went bad when the AC power in the house flickerd on and off
a couple of times.
