Run fsck manually at the debug shell.

Re: Dropping to debug shell at start up

fdisk -l
Find your broken partition then run

e2fsck /dev/sdXY
on that partition from the debug shell or a Fedora 16 (non beta) live cd.

You probably lost some files.

Check the smart values for that drive with

smartctl -a /dev/sdX
When it's up and running again you should run a self test on that drive

smartctl -t long /dev/sdX
This will take a couple of hours depending on the size of the drive since it's trying to read all sectors on that drive.
