How do I get out of this error message on my Retropie bootscreen?

Mon Jul 16, 2018 4:11 am

I get this weird message every time I boot my Pi! Hope this is a easy fix cause I have 1000s of valuable roms and saves I don’t wanna lose.

Cant figure out how to upload pictures of my pictures of the error message so I’ll just type it below:

1 (1 Of 2) A starting job is running for dev-serial.device...

You are in emergenyc mode. After logging in, type “journalctl -xb” to view system logs, “systemctl reboot” to reboot, “systemctl default” or ^D to try again to boot into default mode.

Cannot open access to console, the root Account is locked.
See sulogin(8) man page for more details.

Press Enter to continue.

Perhaps the Retropi forum would be more helpful: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/
