Repairing my initframs in dracut emergency mode Fedora26

I am trying to install nvidia drivers on fedora, following this tutorial : https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide/

I'm quite a beginner on fedora and learning by trial and error but this time I did a big error... I failed the step "2.6.5 Generate initramfs" and forgot to replace "uname" by my user name...

So now my computer does not boot.

While booting I get such warnings : "dracut-initqueue timeout -starting timeout scripts"

Finally, it starts the "dracut emergency shell". And suggests to regenerate my initramfs.

The error report says that "/dev/fedora/root does not exist" "/dev/fedora/swap does not exist" "/dev/mapper/fedora_host-004-root does not exist"

I tried to do "dracut --regenerate-all --force" but the dracut command is unknown.

Do you have an idea of how I could regenerate the initramfs or fix what I did ?

Thank you!
