Installed Nvidia drivers from rpmfusion. Saw they not compatible with Fedora 25. Now system does not boot in fedora anymore. Can I fix it with a Live USB?

Can you still get to a text console? If so, log in and run this command: sudo dnf remove \*nvidia\* to get rid of everything nVidia related. Then reboot, and you'll be back where you were before installing the drivers. If not, there are other things to try but you might as well try the easiest way first.

That's what I want but it panics at showing the log in menu. Can I execute that command from the Live CD?

Done! I used CTRL+ALT+F3 to get to the console. But is the 304.132 official driver(not from rpmfusion) compatible with Wayland?

After install drives I think you need run (to blacklist nouveau)

dracut -f /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
