With init, skipping a scheduled fsck during boot was easy, you just
pressed Ctrl+c, it was obvious! Today I was late for an online
conference. I got home, turned on my computer, and systemd decided
it was time to run fsck on my 1TB hard drive. Ok, I just skip it,
right? Well, Ctrl+c does not work, ESC does not work, nothing seems
to work. I Googled for an answer on my phone but nothing. So, is
there a mysterious set of commands they came up with to skip an
fsck or is it yet another flaw?
"fsck.mode=skip" on the kernel command line.
That lets you prevent systemd from running fsck in the first place.

Unless I'm greatly misunderstanding what I've read so far, it does not
let you cancel a systemd-initiated boot-time fsck which is already in

Discussion found via Google seems to indicate that even Ctrl-Alt-Delete
or the power button (short of the hard-power-off form, which can corrupt
the filesystem being checked) will be ignored by systemd while such a
fsck is in progress.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=719952 seems like it might
be related.

wow,  systemd even disables SysRq by default: #725422
Good to know. Luckily it was fixed in Debian.
But this is imho insane, why one would override such stuff?? I start to understand systemd haters :)
