The discussion shows this to be an incomplete installation,
We can hope that those familiar with Syslinux booting of Fedora LiveOS
images can better explain the failures and partial recovery.
Sometimes the symptoms you report are peculiar to corrupted filesystems or
boot sectors. You may want to troubleshoot those aspects (by reformatting
or reseting the master boot record, if possible, some pointers here,
or experiment with different devices.
Sorry for the incomplete answer.
Thank you for you efforts! Let us know what you learn.
