Jan 04 10:08:06 pegasus mount: Windows is hibernated, refused to mount.
I have my Windows partition mounted in opensuse, and towards the end of the system log there are some complaints about the Windows partition having gone into hibernation and that therefore it could not be mounted.
This has happened a few times. I haven’t been able to do anything to fix the problem yet, but it seems to resolve itself of its’ own accord after booting into Windows a few times.
Should I remove the Windows partition from fstab or is there some other way to fix this?
Well, it says that you did not shutdown your Windows OS properly (thus leaving your file system in an unproper state). The first question is thus: did you shutdown your Windows system completly and correct?
The message is clear enough IMHO, but you do not address it at all.

Try booting into Windows. Then select Restart' rather than Shutdown’. Upon reboot, select openSUSE from GRUB2 to load:
do you still get an emergency prompt?
I think I read here on the forums that some newer version of Windows does in fact not shutdown, but sort of hybernate. I remember also that you could set something somewhere in Windows to configure that.
Sorry about my vagueness, but I know next to nothing about Windows and feel no urge to improve that.
You need to login to Windows, and turn off fast-boot. You can probably find tutorials on how to do that (use google or other search engine). I’ve avoided Windows 10, but I managed to find where to turn off fast-boot in Windows 8. It wasn’t obvious, but it wasn’t too hard to find.
With “fast-boot”, Windows hibernates leaving the file system in an unstable state.
From Windows, if you “restart” instead of “shutdown”, that is supposed to not do this hibernation thingy.
On Windows 8.1, I can right click at the bottom left corner of the screen and shutdown from there. It is supposed to not do the hibernation/fast-boot thingy if I shutdown that way, though I have never tested that (because I have fast-boot turned off anyway).
I’ve just seen another error in the log relating to ACPI which may be relevant, I don’t know:
