SELinux prevents me from login in

I just installed Fedora 29 and I couldn't make it boot (a lot of things failed, like NetworkManager and GDM), I reinstalled numerous times with different settings and then I tried booting with GRUB command "selinux=0" and it worked. Then I reboot and tried to boot with SELinux enabled again: now I can't login, not in GDM neither in command line. Setting it to permissive doesn't work either. What can I do?

Hi, have you tested your installation media before installation? It's the default option when you're live-booting Fedora. Also check your disk's S.M.A.R.T. report for any errors.

I tested the media and there's no S.M.A.R.T errors.
