Fedora fails to boot with systemd-journald failing to start

My computer is in a totally useless state, as I can not boot at all. What I did was I tried to join my root, boot and home partitions into one. I copied the files, updated the grub config and /etc/fstab and recreated the initramfs, all this from a live Fedora environment. Now I can't boot, instead the system hangs at an endless loop printing something like (typing it here from memory) "[FAILED] can't start systemd journal service" over and over again.

What can I do to fix my system?

you can't make them as one partition cause they need to be separated

try using recovery mode if you can see the entry menu, if you post more information about what exactly happens from you turn on the computer until you get the error it would be helpful so we can help you in this case
