Smile Having trouble booting up


Hi everyone!
I ran into a big problem today. I've updated my system halfway due to some reasons. I'm using fedora 18 on a VMware using a yum update command. After I powered up my laptop and booting up Fedora via VMware, the screen shows like this:

I'm struggling doing this for my final year project in school and I hope there is a way to can solve this problem. Thank you so much!

Sorry, that screenshot means little to me; have you tried booting the VM of the fedora DVD iso
into rescue mode (assuming fedora DVD's have one)?

Let me get this right

you did this

About half way through the update you turned off the computer
if so

You have a problem that might NOT be fixable
the easiest thing to do is reinstall

that screen shot looks like during boot it can not mount the os to start it

with this being a VM install you might not be able to use the install dvd to run it is "rescue" mode
