Hi Jordan,

I have tried with latest grub 2.02 beta version. And the problem
booting NVMe device still persists.
but with the workaround grub install we are able to boot Fedora 20.

Please let us know further course of action.

Hi Jordan,

We are able to Boot to FC20, with the workaround suggested by you.
After installing FC20 on our device. We ran this command

"grub-install --modules=part_msdos --boot-directory=/mnt/sysimage/boot

after rebooting the system and booting from NVMe device. We are able
to boot to FC20. first we got the grub menu and then after selecting
the choice we were able to boot to FC20.

You were right. That it might be treating it as totally different
device. Thanks a lot for your valuable suggestions. We will also try
with grub version 2.02 beta. and let you know what happens.
