I have 16 GB RAM on my system and just noticed that I had 18 GB swap memory, so I tried to increase the swap memory by following the instructions from

https://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/442430-increase-your-available-swap-space-with-a-swap-file

And when I rebooted the system, it ended up at DRACUT

I tried to fix the file system by following the instructions at

http://ask.fedoraproject.org/question/682/shell-command-to-fix-filesystem

but when I run

fsck -y /dev/sda1

it says

/etc/fstab not found

and not being able to fix the issue.

Please help.

I do not remember the exact output when I dropped to debug shell, but It says no root partition found and no swap found. By the way, after a few reboots the system starts working, I did not do anything to make it work though. Strange enough. Thank you.
