Computer will not boot after upgrade from 27 to 28

Hello, I am new in this group, and have a big problem. I Have been able to upgrade my fedora before, but now the upgrade from 27 to 28 failed. I did the following commands: sudo dnf upgrade --refresh sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=28 sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot

This last one was taking a long time and I could see the thousands of steps going, but I had to leave the room for a while, then when I came back 30 minutes or so later, my screen was black. The computer was not showing any activities, the keyboard was also dead. At this point, I could only power it off. Now when it boots, it just frozen after the post. I managed to press F2 to go to the BIOS, then when I exit, I got the boot manager, but any option I choose, it does not boot, just freezes. Is there any hopes to recover? I know I can press "e" to edit the line or "c" for command prompt, but not sure what to do.

I have typed the screen I have:

Fedora (5.0.5-100.fc28.x86_64) 28 (Workstation edition)

Fedora (4.18.19-100.fc27.x86_64) 27 (Workstation edition)

Fedora (4.18.19-100.fc27.x86_64) 27 (Workstation edition)

Fedora (0-rescue-143.... big number here) 25 (Workstation edition)

Use arrow keys to change your selection

Press "e" to edit the selected item, or "c" for a command prompt

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
