Please do not top-post.

I am having trouble following your terminology.
Emergency model?
On my centos installation, there is no "Emergency ...."
to select from the list of kernels to boot.

Also, when you say "worked alright" do you
mean that you were able to access what you thought
was missing?
Can you go to full multiuser?
