Ok so here’s the story. Tlaurion was helpful enough over the past few days to get me here, but now I’m stuck.
Issue: It started with an lvm thinpool issue I thought I solved by deleting excess appVMs and fstrim’ing everything, including dom0. I updated dom0 one day, did the usual dance with signing checksums, etc. I turned off power to the laptop while booting up again, because I forgot to actually verify my totp at the HEADS menu instead of just letting it load up. I reboot hoping to just load up like I usually. All of a sudden, I’m in the dracut emergency shell for the first time.
From there we were in trouble. We tried and failed to successfully repair qubes_dom0/pool00 following some instructions we sorted.
Today when I run a lvs -av, no volume groups are found.
I will be able to reply to this post directly and provide screenshots of everything done prior to this. But it’s this new issue that seems to be a show stopper for me. Can I salvage this? Or do I just reinstall and call it lost?
Let me know and thank you.
