Add back missing grub entries.  One way to do it:

  rpm -qf --scripts /boot/vmlinuz-<whatever_you_have>

In an output you will see "postinstall scriptlet" and in it
something like 
  /sbin/new-kernel-pkg --package kernel ....
Run that command and that should restore your grub entry.  If a
corresponding mkinitrd already exists then '--mkinitrd' in options
is not needed.

Previously on this list it was mentioned that hmaccalc package may
be needed for f13 kernel.  Somehow I got that installed even with
hmaccalc missing but YMMV.
