Emergency mode console unavailable

Any ideas?

Well that error pretty much sums it up, the root account is locked.

Try this: Qubes won’t start - not enough disk space - #2 by BEBF738VD

Instead of mounting a vm, mount the root lv:

mount /dev/qubes_dom0/root /mnt

chroot into it if necessary. That should get you going.

Thank you I unlocked root and logged but I’m still stuck in emergency mode and I can’t start xfce

Maybe related to qubesd I guess I will reinstall
