tks, but bad news. Install failed for me, boot msg (from memory):
Loading initial ramdisk ...
error: you need to load the kernel first.

and from lack of attention and old force of habit, I installed the 4.9.2
kernel with rpm -Uvh and it removed my other kernels.

I have no idea about the error "you need to load the kernel first". I

This means grub attempted to load kernel but it failed for some reasons.
Then next command tries to load initrd and it fails with this error
message because it expects kernel to be loaded first.

So you need to look at error of previous command.

And that would be? /var/log/boot.omsg ???

This is grub error, so it happens before kernel is loaded. It would be
on screen.

ok, I will reboot that device and take a photo of the screen, but from memory
I don't recall any other msg.
