Re: boot into emergency mode and "dirty metadata"

Adding this in case the link rots:

"Solution #3 (tested):
1. boot into your LiveCD or LiveUSB
2. once logged in, open gnome-disks utility from the applications (I think its called Disks)
3. unmount all the /dev/mapper/fedora_XXX--root & home & swap
4. open a gnome-terminal (terminal)
5. type su -
6. enter your root password

7. type fsck /dev/mapper/fedora_XXX--root
8. if there are questions about fixing, ignoring, forcing, salvage, etc, always answer y (yes)
9. repeat step 7 & 8 with --home & --swap just to be sure"
Fedora 20 on a dual boot laptop, other OS = Win 7
