Eliminate emergency mode.

At each boot-up my Fedora goes to the emergency mode. Black screen with the following message:

Welcome to emergency mode! After logging in, type "journalctl -xb" to view
system logs, "systemctl reboot" to reboot, "systemctl default" to try again
to boot into default mode.
Give root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):

However , after I type Ctrl+D the boot up is success.

1. Why this message occurs?
2. How to eliminate that?

Thanks.

Look for errors in the system log (/var/log/messages, I think). Sometimes a system boots into emergency mode when either the disk or the memory are generating errors. I suggest running memtest, fsck, and smartctl to test your system.

What is the output of:

journalctl -xb

or did you not yet run that command?

You may have a disk that is defective. What kind of system is this? Is this a new system or did you build something on your own?

How to check whether it's defective or not? Loading from liveCd and fsck?

Well that's fedora, maybe with recompiled kernel  i don't remember.
what does mean "build on my own"?

Gerwin Jansen, EE MVETopic Advisor Commented:
"build on my own" means: did you put the machine together yourself from parts? Did you determine if your disc is defective or not? You can use UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD) for that.

Would you explain why you gave a C-grade? Thanks.
