After shutting down, my F27 wont boot anymore. Login screen shows up, but after entering password only blank gray screen.

I to boot into CL at login screen and things seem to be OK.

When I log into Fedora rescue edition, this is what I get

systemctl -l status boot-efi.mount returns

active: failed Failed to mount

Modprobe vfat returns FATAL module vfat not found in directory.

(this is all in rescue screen)

I have tried Wayland, xOrg and Gnome Classic login screens. Same thing.

[B]EDIT[/B] If i come to the login screen and run CTRL ALT F2, systemclt status returns /boot/efi nomral and active and mounted with no errors. modprobe vfat no errors

Im a newbie. Please Help!!

Run this command: journalctl -b -1. This assumes you are doung this from the command line the next boot after one of the failures.

Then, go to the bottom of the output with G. Scroll back up a little and see the messages where your system crashed. That can give you (and us) some idea of what is wrong.

might be trying to mount a windows partition that was not dismounted by windows. try to disable fast shutdown in windows, and try again.

Thanks. I ended up reinstalling Fedora. It was urgent. Actually helped with other stuff too. I will try that tim8723.
