I use the Fedora 22 Server or Workstation netinst iso with the "Minimal Install" option, without any Add-Ons.

The installation goes fine, but the system hangs during the reboot process. The following error messages appear on the screen:

[FAILED] Failed to start Create Volatile Files and Directories.
See "systemctl status systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service" for details.
[FAILED] Failed to start OpenSSH Server Key Generation.
See "systemctl status sshd-keygen.service" for details.
[FAILED] Failed to start filewalld - dynamic firewall daemon.
See "systemctl status firewalld.service" for details.
[FAILED] Failed to start Login Service.
See "systemctl status systemd-logind.service" for details.

The boot process hangs indefinitely on the last message.....

Apparently something is wrong with the dependencies check for a minimal install.

Regards, Bor.

I will test the minimal install of Fedora 22 workstation, and will get back to you.

I observed this too. It boots fine with "enforcing=0". For some reason /etc/passwd and /etc/group have wrong SELinux contexts. Relabeling fixes it.

It's already reported in Bugzilla:

Oh, I see. The conclusion in the Bugzilla report is that the culprit is an update of libselinux, done at the end of the install. I then assume this will be fixed when the broken update is replaced with a correct other words: it is just a matter of time for this problem to go away. Is that right? Bor.
