Upgrading to Fedora 21 failed and caused kernel panic for Fedora 20, bricking my system

I have been trying to get Fedora 21 running on my desktop for the past week, but I have been running into all kinds of issues with kmod-nvidia and my graphics card. Whenever I try booting into System Upgrade in GRUB (created by fedup), I instantly receive a black screen and I am forced to reboot.

I was on #fedora IRC and I was given the advice to remove the kmod-nvidia packages, upgrade, and then reinstall. I tried doing that with no success. After booting back into Fedora 20, I reinstalled the drivers, reexecuted fedup, and tried rebooting for good measure.

After getting the same results as before, I restarted my computer to see only the few kernel options present in GRUB - none of the System Upgrade options like before.

Immediately upon choosing any of the available kernels, I am greeted with this message. (I apologize for quality but I am working off my phone right now.)

Kernel Panic!

Any help is greatly appreciated as I'm virtually without a system.

On #fedora IRC, I was told to install simple-storage-manager and provide its output, which I have done so here.
