Fedora 25 to 27 Upgrade: Oh no! Something has gone wrong.

I upgraded to the latest Fedora release today morning and ever since I have been stuck with this issue. I googled for the cause of this issue and realised that it is due to incompatibility of Nvidia drivers. However, none of the solutions mentioned in the related discussions work for me. To begin with, I am not even able to get a terminal window (which I believe should have nothing to do with the graphics drivers) once I get stuck with this "Oh no!" screen. Can someone please tell me how to tide over this issue and start using my laptop normally with Fedora 27 correctly working as expected?

This issue is really annoying and I am surprised how such a showstopper was released without even a basic test.

Fedora is not officially tested with the proprietary NVidia drivers and I doubt that it would even be a blocker if there was a problem found.

Assuming you get the login screen, after you click on your name, there will be a little gear icon. Click on that and choose the "Gnome on Xorg" session option. See if that works.

You can try booting using the previous kernel from F25. Or last resort, you can press CTRL-ALT-F3 to get a console where you can do a text-based login and work from there.
