    No, my system runs well since the problem got fixed and this is the reason why I want to share my experience with Peter to solve his problem when I saw this thread.

    This didn't dump me into emergency mode, but lost me the use of the Windows partitions, which isn't acceptable for me.

    The first version is just to test if booting works without dumping into
    emergency mode. If that works, then the second version will also work -
    however...

    What the second line does (notice that 'nofail' is separated by a comma,
    not a space, as explained in "man fstab") is that in case that the
    system fails to mount that partition, it will continue without giving
    you an error. Silently. You may notice because boot will be slow while
    the system tries.

    The "/windows/X" folders will be there, but empty (if mount failed at
    boot).
    It certainly slowed down, and eventually dumped me into emergency mode, but, after I'd logged in, the Windows partitions were accessible without manual mounting. SUSE Paste has become obsessed with the idea that I'm a spammer, so the corresponding journal is at [Bash] journal 12/4 14:29 - Pastebin.com

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    Huh? Now, please explain that... Things are getting interesting :-)
    I don't remember if I was prompted by Apper or asked YaST Control Center > Software > Online Update, and regret that I wasn't more suspicious of the large number of changes being proposed.

    At that time, where you see 12.3 above I had 12.2.

    I presume this, Enabled instead of No, is what got me into trouble, but what I'd like to know now is how to get out of it again!

    Well, we have a borked system upgrade here. I have advised you what to
    do in the other thread “opensSUSE-2013-262 - systemd: re-add persistent
    network rules”.
