i have a laptop running fc25, i have been running 24 and updated when the update came out, everything was fine aside from having to modprobe my wireless card, 1. i updated using a simple dnf update as root. EDIT( i might have ctrl + z the process bc it was taking a bit long, then i re ran dnf update and read nothing to do! so i didn't think much of it.) 2. rebooted it and let grub select the latest 4.8.11 kernel ( the one ive been using) 3. i got a kernel panic:/ 4. also my hardrive is encrypted but no prompt was outputed before the kernel panic. message is :Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

I am able to select the old kernel 4.8.10. and log in no problems, but i would like to know how to get the latest kernel to work, help would be greatly apreciated

This looks mostly like the initramfs is unable to open when booting, so encrypted driver may not be loaded. Try to regenerate it or re-install the kernel package. Also check if the /boot become full and initramfs might be truncated.
