Description of problem:

This section doesn't apply to live media, as it's a graphical boot and the Anaconda rescue mode is text based so it won't work in graphical boot. Therefore inst.rescue doesn't apply, and also there is no "Rescue a Fedora System" option on lives.

What they can do is include a boot parameter:
init=/bin/bash

The problem with using rescue.target or emergency.target is Fedora lives don't set a root user password, and systemd requires a root password to use those targets.
