I am using Fedora 29. After the recent update, the laptop doesn't boot up and stuck in emergency mode. However, in the bootloader, it shows 4 different fedora option. botloader image

As seen in the pic the Fedora (4.19.10.... ) and Fedora (0-rescue-....) stuck in emergency mode and the other two options starts the fedora properly. Help me to remove the first option and stay with the Fedora 4.19.6-300 as default bootup.

Before removing the latest kernel, you should make sure it's causing the problem. Next time you boot, when you get to that menu, press the down arrow once, then press Enter. This will boot you into the previous kernel instead of the latest. If that works, you can worry about removing the offending kernel.

The questioner knows the process and asks for an answer to remove the problem kernel.

Kernel bugs can happen in system operation. Kernel stability is important when used without a monitor. Therefore, in order to ensure stable system operation, the face of kernel problems during each boot process is very important to system administrators. Stopping a commercial server causes a lot of problems because it takes a lot of time to fix a system hang due to kernel problems during the reboot process.

Please remove the error kernel part and refer to the attached file below to specify the fixed kernel. modify the /boot/grub2/grub.cfg file and fix the specific kernel by referring to the appendix below.

 [root@nalkal fedora]# ls
 [root@nalkal fedora]# pwd

 [root@nalkal grub2]# pwd
 [root@nalkal grub2]# ls  fonts  grub.cfg  grubenv  i386-pc  themes

[UEFI -> /boot/efi/EFI/fedora ] recomment @sulthan90

### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/10_linux ###

**Please remove the problematic kernel part.**

***menuentry 'Fedora (4.19.10-300.fc29.x86_64) 29 (Workstaion Edition)' --class fedora --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class }
