I don't have a definitive answer, but I do have an educated guess on question 
#2. If the drivers used for video have been changed, or different drivers have 
been used, you may not be in a video mode where that display is supported. I've 
been fighting with a lot of video config issues if fc1[78] upgrades and 
installs, what worked in fc16 doesn't (a) always work, and (b) *often* doesn't 
get used by fedup, resulting in no video during the update process and after 
boot into fc18.
