failed to start Gnome Display Manager

Dear fedora users,

I have installed a fedora 21 on Windows 10 through virtualbox, for about a year already.

Due to a unclean shut down today, I cannot start the fedora 21 virtual machine anymore.

tried rescue mode, also failed at starting gnome display manager.

Is there anyway to fix this? or log in without graphics?

Thank you.

Re: failed to start Gnome Display Manager

Your problem is actually more serious than just not being able to start gdm. It looks like your system cannot even start the systemd-journald service. Solve this problem first. BTW, F21 is no longer supported: you should install F24+
Asus K55VD, i5 3230M - Productivity/Programming (F24)
Asus M32CD - i7-6700, Asus STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD, 1x8 GB Sk Hynix 2133 MHz DDR4 - Gaming (W10)
