Don't use OS X all that much but /dev/disk2s2 is disk 2 partition 2. The correct syntax is to use the drive ID i.e. /dev/disk2.

michaelk,

Well now I feel stupid...

But still the media fails the check I described earlier. This is a different USB stick than before. Will try to boot with it nevertheless...

Wow. It looks like it's working...amazing. Thank you.

So my current plan to fix this is to run Gparted, create a Windows 7 partition, install Windows, then install F21. But...

It would be really great if I could salvage my data. GParted shows only

Partition File System Size Used Unused
/dev/sda1 ext4 465.76 GB 145.68 MiB 354.32 MiB

Is there any chance to save my data or should I proceed with the repartition/reformat/reinstall?

I will use the Fedora Live boot disk, install Testdisk, and attempt to recover from there.

unetbootin is faster than installing another os.
