Corrupted /boot partition

A lot of sys admin lessons learnt recently. Today I just managed to corrupt the /boot partition of 6 physical servers (32 core and 96GB RAM each)! Personal record on biggest mess-up. What I did was to to 'make install' -> no space left on /dev -> deleted old kernel entries. At one time I forgot to delete old entries and did 'make install' 2 or 3 times, I guess that made /boot unhappy.

But compared to Google's mess-up, I feel little again...
