I had a similar problem when I was first setting mine up, but I kept

So... Try booting over and over and if you get to a root shell, connect
to a network and update immediately.
Sorry for taking so long to reply. I managed to solve the problem a
while ago, but forgot to post what I did here.
I am not really sure what was wrong. But here is roughly what I did:
- Updated u-boot using F22's version, instead of the (provided) F21
- Used Arch[GNU/]Linux's scripts to regenerate my sdcard and initial
boot partitions. You can see the instructions here:
The script to create the sdcard can be found here:
- Adapted the sdcard created by the script mentioned above in order to
accomodate the necessary Fedora partitions.
After all of that, the system finally booted. I am still seeing many
warnings from Linux during the boot, and I spent a lot of time doing the
steps above and figuring out what worked and what didn't, so I can't
really say now if everything is indeed needed, or if only a subset of
the steps above would fix the problem.
Anyway, I hope this helps anyone who is also trying to install Fedora on
a BeagleBoard-xM Rev C.
