... was just a placeholder because I was too lazy to type the entire name with numbers of your kernel. When executing that command, you will have to type it entirely: sudo dnf mark install kernel-PAE-core-4.6.7-300

Not sure you can remove Classic Gnome. Other than that there is no Desktop Environment shipped with Fedora Workstation. What else do you see when you click onto your username on the logon screen and then click on the little wheel?

Try marking the kernel as manually installed. dnf mark install kernel-PAE-core-4.6.7-300.
