Using rescue cd, boot rescu cd and
let the rescue cd mount the fedora on /mnt/sysimage
1- chroot /mnt/sysimage
2- grub-install --recheck /dev/sda   (assuming that is your installed 

If /dev/sda is not present, then you need to exit chroot (just type exit)
ls -l /dev/sda
Note the major and minor numbers.
now chroot again, and cd /dev
mknod sda b <major> <minor>
Use the major and minor number you saw when you did ls -l /dev/sda

Good luck
