Usb in dom0 is not restricted - when using QubeOS on external SDD disk

I have QubeOS on an external SSD, often everything works when I attach it to the the USB, start the computer and then log into QubeOS.

But sometimes after entering my password 3x correctly during the login page (and waiting for >1-2 minutes without nothing happening), QubeOS is not advancing further and showing the warning “usb in dom0 is not restricted”, after which I am not logged in and I remain the console.

How can I fix this issue?

The console displays the following:

[    1.573738] dracut-cmdline[251]: Warning: USB in dom0 is not restricted
Warning: /dev/mapper/qubes_dom0-root does not exist
Warning: /dev/qubes_dom0/root does not exist
Warning: /dev/qubes_dom0/swap does not exist

Generating: "/run/initiramfs/rdsosreport.txt"

Entering emergency mode. Exit the shell to continue.
Type "journalctl" to view system logs.
You might want to save "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt" to a USB stick or /boot
after mounting them and attach it to a bug report.

Please Enter for maintenance
(or press Control+D to continue):

The USB in dom0 is not restricted message is unrelated to your issue, the warnings after this message about partitions not existing are relevant.
Seems like your SSD was disconnected after booting to LUKS password prompt screen.

thanks! Any ideas how to proceed?

I think this is what you should do. And then tell us what the logs say.
