    Default 12.2 won't boot: welcome to emergency mode message?

    Hello,
    I'm flying tomorrow for a training and tonight my laptop won't boot without warning!
    After grub 2 screen, I got the message:
    Welcome to emergency mode. Use "systemctl default" or ctrl D to enter default mode
    Give root password for login:

    I login but then nothing happen.

    Thanks for your quick help!

    You have to login, discover in text mode what is the problem, and then
    solve the problem. Once you solve the problem you will be able to boot
    in normal mode.

    You can try running "systemd-journalctl" and find out in that long text
    what is wrong.

    If you complain that the information is complex and difficult to find,
    welcome to the club. This is Bug 782904, and I'm afraid there is no
    intention to improve the situation.


    You can instead boot in systemv mode (at the grub boot screen), which is
    way more helpful when it enters emergency mode.
