Hello :)

today I edit /etc/fstab (to add automount for hdd) and when i restart the system it doesn't work.
It' failed to mount the disk, then it doesn't start, i try to edit cmdline.txt and add "init=/bin/sh" or "/bin/bash" or "" or "" but I have the same problem, I don't have access to command line to edit the file and i receve every time the same error: "Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked See sulogin(8) man page for more details Press enter to continue."
If I press enter it repeat the phrase in loop every press.
What I can do?

I've Debian Stretch Raspian installed with BerryBoot (all have last update) on Raspberry Pi 3B

sorry for my ban eng :(
