Fedora won't load after a partition merging attempt.

Running f22

So, I've tried to merge root partition with seperated /var partition via liveDVD. I mounted those both, created a new var folder in root filesystem and copied the content of the old var into it. Then i removed a line from /etc/fstab, so it contains only / and swap filesystems. Finally I removed var partition with lvremove /dev/fedora_pcname/var and rebooted in normal mode (no liveDVD). A few seconds after the fedora logo appeared i got this error: [1.409866] usb 2-1.2 : device descriptor read/64, error -32

I might have messed something up with links in /dev/disk Here is what's inside /dev/disk/by-uuid:

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 9 Dec 16 13:42 2015-05-21-19-08-23-00 -> ../../sr0 lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 10 Dec 16 13:42 a831896d-cd03-494b-984b-5b601c2e10fe -> ../../dm-4 lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 10 Dec 16 13:42 f878d703-ba04-4d02-bd05-a54a046ab722 -> ../../dm-3 lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 10 Dec 16 13:42 fb7bf7ec-397a-4000-bdc2-d37399da89bf -> ../../dm-2 shouldn't any of these link to sda or sda1 devices?

and inside /dev/disk/by-id:

I got absolutely no idea what may be wrong, so any help would be appreciated.

Unless your root filesystem is a USB drive, I don't think the usb warning is related to the boot failure. Try unplugging the various USB devices to find the source of the complaint, and please describe the problem you're having in addition to the suspect symptoms you've already described.
