Boot off the install DVD and go into rescue mode.
Cd the mounted root for the hard drive with new installation. Then do a "chroot" so you are now operating on the installed disk drive.
next run the following command:
mkinitrd -f --with=scsi_wait_scan /boot/initrd-188.8.131.52-117.fc10.x86_64.img 184.108.40.206-117.fc10.x_86_64
This will install a new initrd in /boot.
Now reboot. Should work.
The only issue after this seems to be a bad name resolver library that is causing yum updates to fail because it can't resolve some repository host names. That was fixed by hardcoding some of the mirror sites in /etc/hosts.
... Moving on to other hurdles ...
Thank you very much. It worked for me on a HP Proliant ML150 server.
/sbin/mkinitrd -f --with=raid10 --with=raid456 --with=aacraid --with=scsi_wait_scan /boot/initrd-220.127.116.11-159.fc10.x86_64.img 18.104.22.168-159.fc10.x86_64
