Fedora 19 Dracut/boot swap does not exist warning

After trying to remove an old fedora partition I had to remove a swap as I ended up with two, however to remove the old swap I ran swapoff -a which turned all swaps off. I then removed the partition and rebooted.

Upon reboot I was greeted by dracut failing to boot and entering emergency shell, giving me the following error:

Warning /dev/fedora_op/swap does not exist
Warning /dev/mapper/fedora_op/swap does not exist

"Fedora_op" was the old fedora installation, which my current seemed to be using it's swap file since that was created first.

Can I fix this error with a few commands? I'm not in the know.

I also have access to a fedora 18 cd which I have just used to recover the grub menu after installing windows, so I can use the rescue option there to enter the shell too.
