Problems reinstalling Fedora 28

I was having issues with storage space when I first downloaded 28 with dual boot Windows so I decided to reinstall it and partition space manually. After deleting the partition made automatically, I reinstalled from a USB after partitioning appropriately. After restarting to make sure everything worked correctly, upon the dual boot screen, I was shown 2 "Fedora" options to boot up. One led me to an error screen of "couldn't find the correct files" so I figured that was the old one and resolved to fixing that later and using the other option "Fedora." The first couple times went fine but for the past several hours' worth of restarting, BOTH "Fedora" options are sending me to that same "couldn't find files" screen. I've been searching online for days now for some kind of solution and everything so far has failed. I really need this to work ASAP for research I'm doing so the longer this takes, the less research I can do.

Before you pose any questions, just google it. If you can find an answer to it, I've probably already tried it. Not to sound pretentious, I've just been at this for literal days and have beaten my head against several brick walls, both figuratively, and literally.

Thanks in advance

Boot from a live USB and show us the gparted or fdisk -l outputs. I'm thinking your partitions are off a little bit.

I had a whacky dual-boot week, SuperGrub fixed it
