Let us know what you have done. In my understanding you are trying to add a Desktop Environment on top of a previous fedora server installation What DE did you choose? What did you run for getting it installed? What is your graphic card? Did you reboot your system or ran systemctl isolate

Himanshu Dhingra, have you installed Fedora Workstation or Fedora Server?

If it's Workstation, it comes pre-configured with full graphical environment, and if you can't access it -- there's most likely a problem with graphics card on you computer (it need proprietary drivers, for example). We may provide some advice if it's the case.

If you've installed Server, then I would recommend reinstalling Workstation variant, it can be easier and faster than troubleshooting your case.
