[SOLVED] I can't login as root after set selinux to enforcing

hi there
I can't login as root after set state of selinux to enforcing (SELINUX=enforcing) in /etc/selinux/config file and reboot
I don't have GRUB boot loader to boot single user from it

I resolved my problem in this ways:
  • boot server from centos 7 boot image
  • select Troubleshooting from items menu
  • select Rescue a CentOS system from next menu
  • select continue
  • press Enter to get a shell
  • change root environment with this command: # chroot /mnt/sysimage
  • edit /etc/selinux/config file and change selinux mode to permissive
  • exit from root shell and reboot server
