I have done what is written in this link https://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2015/fedora-nvidia-guide after section 2.7

I did reboot my Fedora machine, and after that, the system could not boot correctly and error below is shown on screen

error:file'initramfs-3.17.8-300.fc21.x86-64.img' not found press any key to continue.

How can I boot correctly?


Boot off a recovery media and then mount the hard-drive with the problematic OS.

cd into the directory mounted and chroot that directory. Run dracut/initramfs. Make sure that a new initramfs file is created in /boot.

Reboot the OS

  • i have done chroot and know i have access to boot directory but can you tell me how to run dracut/initramfs?? – Sina Sameti Feb 24 '18 at 5:56
