dnf install @gnome-desktop should work. You might have to change the default run target after, but I'm not sure. If you don't get the graphical login after that, then comment back here again.

I run that command yesterday. system is trying to load graphical interface, but hangs. Here are the details.

19:52 GLib: g_child_watch_add_full: assertion 'pid > 0' failed gdm
19:46 Unrecoverable failure in required component org.gnome.Shell.desktop gnome-session-binary
19:45 watchdog: watchdog0: watchdog did not stop! kernel

Maybe that group doesn't contain everything necessary. Run systemctl set-default multi--user to boot to the non-graphical login. Then try systemctl start gdm and see what happens. If you can paste more of the log messages to that would probably help.
