I dowloaded latest 64 bit Fedora 22 server DVD iso and started installing. After getting first installation screen(where language can be selected), I wanted to go to ctrl+alt+F2 (console 2) and run some script, to load my storage driver. But when I tried to switch to console 2, cursor was just blinking on left top corner and there was no shell prompt. (On FC 21 and before I was able to switch to console 2 without any issue and run my script)

Could you please guide me how to overcome this issue and get the shell prompt.

Try changing to console mode: systemctl isolate Or pick from something more feasible in the list, systemctl list-unit-files *.target.
