Hi, I would like to inform everyone that I tried an automatic 'yum update' and after that update, I was no longer able to boot into the os.

My specs are as follows. I am running windows pro version 1703 (os build 15063.540). I am also running vmware on that version. I just upgraded to the latest version VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.7.

I was running my redhat fedora 25 from .iso without any problems. Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-25-1.3 .... then I decided to upgrade via command yum update. And after restarting, I am no longer able to boot it up correctly.

So, when i am trying to boot it I get the following:

Failed to start Accounts services. See systemctl status account-daemon.service for details. Failed to start RealtimeKit Scheduling Police Service See systemctl status rtkit-deamon.service for details. Failed to start firewalld - dynamic firewal daemon. See ... Failed to start ModemManager.service for details. See .... Failed to Start Avahi mDNS/DNS-SD Stack. See ... Failed to start Bluetooth service. See ...

What can I do now ????

When booting I have apparently 4 options to boot from different

Fedora 4.9.13-200.fc25.x8664 25 Workstation edition Fedora 4.9.12-200.fc25.x8664 25 Workstation edition Fedora 4.9.7-201.fc25.x86_64 25 Workstation edition Fedora (0-rescue-7b.....longnumber.....) 25 Workstation edition

I tried all of them ... but none of them seems to recover, including the last 'recover' option. All of them end up with the same problems.

if you did this on Fedora 25 you should be using dnf instead of yum. Yum is discontinue. You should try to login into your system using ctrl+alt+f3 to see if the prompt is presented and then login on the terminal to reinstall those services that are failing using sudo dnf reinstall accountsservice

@aeperezt : please recall that I am a newbie and I am running windows 10 pro on host .... and running fedora 25 on VMware via .ISO . So, I don't see how I can accomplish what u outlined . There is no command line . The only thing I can do I get into "grub" I think

Since none of the three kernels (that are by the way not up to date!) is booting, your problem may not necessarily be caused /related by the yum update command. Maybe your issue is related to the upgrade of VMWare software? Fedora 26 is also not booting on VMWare 12, see bug report here.

So what happens after those error messages? Do you get to a login screen?
