While booting the system the GRUB2 menu will be displayed, to boot into the rescue mode follow these steps:

Use the arrow keys to select the boot entry you want to edit
Press e to start editing that entry
Use the arrow keys to go to the line that starts with linux
    If you have a UEFI system it's the line that starts with linuxefi 
Go the the end of that line add a space then the word single or the number 1
Press Ctrl-x or F10 to boot that entry
