I knew that I would lose all data on the drive, but I just wanted to see if that would fix things. It didn't.
I've written this off as a corrupted partition table / bad hard drive. I re-wrote the partition table several times, but did not see any improvement. I've since replaced the drive with a new one and now everything magically works.
I guess Fedora must be more sensitive to corrupted partition tables.
