Broke Fedora 20 by changing the Volume Group Name and resizing rootin LVM.

In an attempt to seperate my /home from my root, I did the following using a Parted Magic USB ISO.

  1. I resized ext4 filesystem on root using resize2fs
  2. Then reduced the lvm partition using lvreduce.
  3. Then used lvcreate to create a new partition.
  4. Mounted the new partition and moved data.
  5. I also created an Additional Partition and renamed the volume group.

I then edited fstab and added the UUIDs of the partition to the disk. It gets stuck at Reached Target System. I then tried to generate a new GRUB2 config file using grub2-mkconfig using the fedora Live USB. Still same thing.

Also the grub is on a seperate /boot partition. The entire lvm is on an ssd and grub stage 0 is on a HDD that loads this. Grub is working fine but fedora stops loading at Reached Target System.
