When I boot Fedora 17 this error appears:

Cannot open font file True

I found this question Cannot open font file True, but the person who faced the problem in that question can access the console. In my case I can't access anything!

Can I use external live system like live Ubuntu to fix this problem? If "yes" what should I do exactly?

This is a known bug, an update should fix it. Read through the comments at the cited bug, there you'll find the solution. And you can fix the problem using a LiveCD or the installation CD (select "rescue").
