That makes since. I was not criticizing just asking 'why' for possible
helpful information. Hopefully you did backup /home/<user_name>  (your

Perhaps. At least I would like to try.

Does it boot at all or just nothing?

Does it get as far as the Grub Menu? If you can it might be a
kernel/grub error. If you can get to the Grub Menu boot to the older
kernel  and run CLI command:

yum-complete-transaction

<http://linux.die.net/man/8/yum-complete-transaction>

This fixed a bad upgrade for me.
