Unix System V is from 1983. There is a pretty good chance that the disk image you have is not even for Intel x86 architectures and won't work at all on your system or emulator. Maybe if you used one of the alternate qemu architectures. But most likely you'd need to get your hands on compatible hardware that still works. There are some youtube videos where ...
It's very reliable and supported by all kernel versions that support initrd, AFAIK. It's a feature of the cpio archives that initramfs are made up of. cpio just keeps on extracting its input....we might know the file is two cpio archives one after the other, but cpio just sees it as a single input stream. Debian advises use of exactly this method ...
You should be able to change the run-level, as the default run-level should should either be set in /etc/inittab or a sym-link from /lib/systemd/system/<target name>.target to /etc/systemd/system/default.target. Booting from live means you ignore the installed OS entirely and use the live OS instead, but can still access the hard drive.
You'll need to boot into recovery mode. Probably the easiest way to do this is to use installation media, carefully. Lesson learned: don't mess with critical Unix files. If you do, make thrice sure everything is OK.
None of the partitions on your first disk has the bootable flag set. Either set a partition as bootable using gparted from your live session, or tell your BIOS to boot from the other disk, which does have a partition marked bootable.
If you have an Nvidia card, the issue may be explained by rpmfusion: 'Fedora 23 Users' nVidia currently doesn't support the Xorg server in Fedora 23, please take a look at the Rawhide section from this document. In order to boot, you can boot into a console using CTRL+ALT+F3, then remove the proprietary driver with: sudo dnf remove ...
You can find a complete tutorial of how installing AT&T System V/386 (SYSVR4 v 2.1) in Bochs on the www.linuxquestions.org forum. Some paticipants of the forum claim to run it under qemu, VirtualBox and even on an bare bone Pentium 3. Even if studying System V is a form of computer archeology, it could still have some historical and technical interest. ...
