• Dropped into emergency shell


    This may be the result of updating Antergos today, but I’m not sure. Antergos suddenly crashed while I was web browsing. I waited 10 minutes but nothing: all I could do was move the mouse around. I did a hard reset and the terminal gave me this when I tried booting up:

    Warning: /lib/modules/4.14.12-1-ARCH/modules.devname not found - ignoring
    starting version 236
    ERROR: resume: hibernation device ‘UUID=a68b5eb4-ada0-4a92-b551-585925423aac’ not found
    ERROR: device ‘UUID=efd398be-9f4e-4268-bbad-4b0eb31d312d’ not found. Skipping fsck.
    mount: /new_root: can’t find UUID=efd398be-9f4e-4628-bbad-4b0eb31d312d.
    You are now being dropped into an emergency shell.
    sh: can’t access tty; job control turned off
    [rootfs ]#

    I can’t even type in anything after rootfs. However, I was able to boot up a live Antergos copy from my flash drive, peer into my drive, and see that all the data on my hard drive is intact! Is GRUB corrupted? What is required so that I may boot into my hard drive again? Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Yes, while updating you had a crash… That error means that your system couldn’t generate initramfs, so it can’t boot.

    You’ll need to boot Antergos iso and mount your partitions, then chroot to the mounted partition and perform a full update, sudo pacman -Syu, after that just in case run sudo mkinitcpio -P, unmount partitions and reboot

    To mount your partitions use one of these tutorials
