So simply said i installed fedora 29, rebooted.. started doing some initial setup and when i was ok with everything and everything was updated i rebooted just to confirm. Everything works to this moment. And it works as it should until i boot into MS windows (willingly... not by mistake or forced). Since the moment i booted to windows i cant boot back to fedora. So until i boot to Win i can spend many days in Fedora and reboot as many times as i want.(i know this cuz its the third time it did this) Then i end up in emergency mode and the log shows "sysroot.mount in red with Failed next it. So i did a clean fresh install just to encounter the same issue... everything works till the moment i decide to use windows.

Is it possible that Windows somehow locks the disk for itself even after hard shutdown or reboot so that Fedora cant mount the partition to boot? It happend to me a few months back while i was distro hopping on debian aswell so maybe its really a windows issue or something is set up badly.

Anyways.. what should i provide you with to tell whats causing this issue? THX for any help
