I actually opened the Virtual Disk Image (.vdi) on http://www.vmxray.com/.
I could see that despite my disk being of 100GB only ~65GB was being shown.
All the stuff related ot the local user was not visible at all.
After I restarted my VM, the OS gets stuck here (

login it was stuck there. But the emergency mode worked alright.
