Hello Dave,

This looks like Grub2 stuff but I found here F14 uses Grub legacy:

If your F14 install uses Grub2 I would recommend reinstalling Grub2 from
F14 onto your first disk. Anyway you could check which Grub version your
F14 install is using?

Steps to install Grub2 onto your first harddisk (/dev/sda):
- boot with F14 live CD into a live session
- open terminal and become root
- mount your F14 install with *mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt* (assuming root and
/boot are on that partition)
- mount /dev, /proc and /sys:
  *mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
   mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
   mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc*
- chroot into your mounted F14 install: *chroot /mnt*
- update your Grub config to include all the OS's: *update-grub*
- install Grub into the MBR of your first harddisk: *grub-install /dev/sda*
