    As far as I can tell, the only reason for emergency mode is failure to mount some filesystem. So remove "quiet" on kernel command line, when you get emergency prompt, login and provide output of "journalctl -b". This should show what failed.

    "systemctl --failed" may give quick overview which mount points failed.

    The system hangs on the splash screen because it cannot load the desktop environment, but it is already at runlevel 5; so it's weird that you can not enter the console mode... Wait a while on the splash screen before typing CNTRL-ALT-F1 (or F2, F3 ...).

    Did you try to read previous messages? Do you know what "emergency mode" is?

    I'm not sure what a snapshot boot or emergency mode is. New to linux lingo.

    I just wanted to get my things done. Figures linux is not for it. Because since last six months, I've been doing some or other form of troubleshooting. And now all my data is lost as I'll never be able to login to the **** system!

    Regarding entering console, have waited for almost an hour, but nothing happens on any kind of shortcut.

    Regarding providing output of journal, well the PC is not starting. So I cannot write those 1000+ lines here for getting help with the problem.

    Anyway, I'm deleting the linux OS from my PC. Switching back to Windows. I'm done with OpenSource that doesn't work at all.

    It's not a relationship where I've to be loyal.

    This is a tool that should help me get things done easily, and if it doesn't, just increases work instead of otherwise, then it goes into garbage.

    Just a point I've been using openSUSE since it became openSUSE and it has been for the most part rock solid. Any Linux can have problems with some hardware. I always build my own and chose parts known to be OK in Linux. 42.2 has been absolutely solid for me

    Sorry to read of your problems. I do believe your pessimism is a bit premature.

    In January 2015 my 88-year old mother (at the time) was unable to boot to her PC that was running openSUSE GNU/Linux. It refused to boot, not even to run level-3. My mother lives over 7,000 km away. Yet 7,000km away, I was able to repair this computer, that could not boot, again ... from 7,000 km away. I documented how i did it here: https://forums.opensuse.org/entry.ph...ck-7000km-away

    She lost NO data. None. Not one bit.

    Now your problem is likely different, but where there is patience and where there is a will, there is often is a way.

    But ....

    This is unfortunate that you are throwing away your good data in an approach of yours that I believe premature - likely driven by totally understandable frustration.

    And truly, it is too bad about your data being wiped by this decision of yours - but IMHO this decision may in the end be the best approach for you.

    Sometimes patience is needed in GNU/Linux and I sense your experience level and familiarity with MS-Windows makes that a far superior operating system for you. That is not a negative thing. Rather it is good you have something that will work better for you. All my family uses MS-Windows as do most the people I know. Go with what works for you.

    Good luck and all the best to you.

    That is not a reply you would have appreciated when starting as a new linux user. ....

    Respond to this
    Anyway, I'm deleting the linux OS from my PC. Switching back to Windows. I'm done with OpenSource that doesn't work at all.

    I simply made the wishes for switching to Windows, so its linux filesystem files will hardly recover them.
    He wrote it, not me who is reinstalling Windows.
    I see posts similar in other forums where I am registered, but first if there is no availability of the user, nothing can be done to help them, do the doctor online ... there must be collaboration
