In the release notes for FC7:

IDE devices names are changing, [release notes, Linux

I also noticed, and can not find again, a note that
disk partitions need a LABEL=, and that /etc/fstab
must be changed to reflect this change.

in my /etc/fstab is the entry for the boot partition

If grub can't boot, or the kernel can't locate the
partition because it is not labeled, or the kernel is
looking for the wrong label. you might get stuck at
that point. 

I've not yet made the upgrade, so I'm not sure this is
