Welcome to the CentOS fora. Reading FAQ & Readme First is recommended for new users.

That is very minimal information to go on. Please read the above for tips on providing more data (such as exactly what errors you encounter, and what you mean by "only partial filesystem" for starters) to get better help.

Have you tried booting from installation media in rescue mode, or from a CentOS LiveCD that may be a better match for the installed system?
