This happened to me.

>From digging down, it looks like on shutdown something in f12 beta sets
the last mounted time +6 hrs into the future on the root or boot
partition. When you re-boot, you get the weird behavior because the root
partition cannot be mounted because the last modified time is in the
future.

You can work around this by

1) waiting 6 hrs and then booting
2) setting the clock ahead in the BIOS and re-booting
