F22 won't boot, how to restore?

I've been running Fedora 22 as my main OS for about 2 weeks now. Last thursday it suddenly wouldn't boot. The log (the one that shows up when you press F12 while booting) gets stuck on the line: "A start job is running for Waiting for Plymouth Boot Screen to quit"

So I'd like to repair my installation using the live cd. I've tried to use this guide, but when I execute "chroot /mnt/fedora" I get an error saying I should have used -t while mounting, but when I try, it says /mount/fedora is not in /etc/fstab.

So are there any ways to repair my installation.

Thanks in advance,

Before using chroot, have you successfully mounted the fedora root filesystem? (What is /mnt/fedora/root) in the example? If so, you would be able to see your content by doing ls /mnt/fedora. I am suspicious you used a wrong path/directory for the mount command since you are writing in your question /mount/fedora is not in /etc/fstab.

BTW, another option to repair is using a Live DVD image and select the Repair option.
