For one, it looks like one of your disks has encountered some form of error. This may be killing the whole startup process.

Things to check:
Do you dual boot with windows? If so, let Windows boot up and dont skip the disk checks if it starts them. If Windows boots correctly check you do not have fast startup or hibernation enabled, this would stop the boot if you are accessing those disks from the Solus side of things as well.

The lines in RED on your boot messages refer to dev/sdx something or other - do you know what those partitions are used for? root/boot/home etc or are they windows partitions?

Regards

First of all thank you for the reply.
Yes, I have dual boot with windows and windows boots with no problem. I don't have fast startup or hibernation enabled, I did not touch anything in bios since I left by the last time (last week).

I dont know what that partitions are used for,I imagine they are used for the solus operative system, the only thing I know is that solus is installed in /sda6 .
Thank's for the answer, if you could reply with non technique vocabulary I'd apprecite due to the fact that am I newbie.

When in emergency mode, have you tried typing 'fsck /dev/sda6' ? This will do a filesystem check on /dev/sda6. If so, what messages do you get?

I finally decided to format the partition and install again solus, I've installed budgie edition...
Is there something I can do to prevent this kind of errors in the future?
Thank you very much steviesteve78
