When You have systemd init daemon, You should use syntax as

linux ...

(see 'man')

Or, SYSV4 init/upstart option are stil functioning, simply to linux
kernel cmdline append 'single', 's', '1'

But You perhaps will find that systemd is almost unusable in rescue
mode (in 'normal' multiuser/graphical mode it is only slightly
better) when starting from installed system. It is better boot
from CD/DVD/USB stick, Fedora or eg. System Rescue CD etc.
