At boot time stop F16 kernel and append this boot kernel command line param:
which should set up the base system and a rescue shell (similar to run level 1),
but without sulogin executed.

# package-cleanup --dupes
# package-cleanup --problems
# rpm -V -a --quiet
and whatever else you wish.
When you finish you can leave by:
# shutdown -Fr now
On boot, this time stop as above once again and change that kernel boot option
which should bring you to non-GUI login.
After that your system should be yours (debug/investigate it if needed).
