My computer froze and I foolishly did a hard reset. Now when I try to boot Ubuntu, it stalls on the loading screen for about 30 seconds and then kicks me into emergency mode. I've taken a look at the journal and I'd gladly post the revelant results here but there are hundreds of lines and I'm not sure which parts to post. I'll update this if/when someone guides me to it.
here are some highlighted/red sections that seemed like they'd be relevant:
secureboot: Secure boot could not be determined (mode 0) ACPI BIOS Warning (bug): Optiional FADT field Pm2ControlBlock has valid Length but zero address: (long string) xhci_hcd 0000:4:00.0: host halt failed, -110 || : can't setup: -110 || : init 0000:4:00.0 fail, -110 Timed out waiting for device on dev-disk-by\(long string).device.
