Boot a rescue disk and check the grub configuration. You may want to adjust
the timeout setting. (I like to use 9.) That should give you time to
switch which kernel you are booting from.

While the video driver churning continues to go on, running kernels from
koji that are two far removed from your base system are likely to have
problems. The libdrm, kernel, xorg and mesa stuff all needs to be consistant
with each other.
