My first suggestion would be to boot the previous kernel.  If that doesn't
help, try specifying /rescue/sh as the single-user shell.

If neither of those work, please specify the exact error message you
get and the point where you get it (if you don't have a serial console
available, post a link to picture of the screen showing the issue).
