Hi: it looks like a LVM incorrect mapping issue. Try doing a rescue start (or a live one) and check your lvm / volumes configuration.
Kind regards

I had a similar issue with my install. I ended up re-writing the f20 iso to a usb stick via Fedora's image writer and it worked.

Strangely enough, I fixed this problem by simply typing "exit" at the prompt. Fedora booted sluggishly with warnings but got me to the desktop. "sudo yum update -y" followed by a reboot made the problem go away.
