Description smaudet 2015-08-25 01:49:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Cannot reboot from fedora rescue prompt

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Instead of booting fedora directly, boot to the rescue prompt

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to rescue prompt
2. Do not login
3. Observe that you cannot reboot

Actual results:
Cannot reboot without logging in/hard resetting the machine.

Expected results:
Should have some way of rebooting without logging in.

Additional info:
If the login here fails for some reason...you're pretty much screwed. That's why it would be good to be able to reboot from this prompt.

grub2 isn't involved with rescue, other than presenting the boot option. rescue is booting the installed system, just using a different kernel and initrd. It wouldn't be safe to let just anyone reboot the system so I don't think there is much we can do here.
