fedora 18 not booting

Sir I am running fedora18 and windows8 operating systems. I am unable to boot into fedora because it is trying to mount other ntfs partitions and displaying message that there was an error while mountIng /dev/sda2 (which is ntfs partition) and running into emergency mode. Actually I don't want to mount other partitions and also I have not added these partitions in fstab. These ntfs partitions are working properly in Windows8.

Please suggest how to disable mounting other partitions using rescue DVD.

Did you disable win8's secure boot ?

so this is a dual boot
you resized the drive to install fedora 18 on or used a second drive ?

where did you install fedora to ?

/dev/sd? what

is win8 using encrypted partitions ?

Was fedora working ?
or has it never booted
