comment Fedora 17 keeps using fedora 16 kernel
RPM packages allow for actions to be triggered pre-installation, post-installation and post-transaction; likely the grub2 package triggered installation of the build loader too soon (before the new kernels were installed, perhaps in %post instead of in %posttrans). Perhaps filing a bug in bugzilla.redhat.com would be in order? A lot of us testers upgraded to F17 pre-releases long time ago (and fix our grub install by hand) so maybe straight updates from F16 are not as well tested

comment Backing up MBR on laptop disks with recovery partiitions?
If I could just back up the recovery partition itself, plus any custom MBR but without the partition table (because everything after the recovery partition might change over time as I repartition for different OSes) that'd be nice. If only Sony allows creating recovery media on USB sticks. The netbook in question does not even have an optical drive (and I have a subnotebook with the same problem too).

comment Backing up MBR on laptop disks with recovery partiitions?
with these custom bootloaders, would backing up the first 446 bytes (the MBR) of the disk be sufficient to fix things?

comment Browsers in Lion are always running 64-bit Java
Before reinstalling, try checking, on machine B, if the same behavior occurs on a fresh user account. It might be due to some configuration files in ~/Library (though I'm not sure which)
