Citrix Xen server 7.0 hosted at OVH stuck in recovery


We have a xenserver that ran into problems

It is hosted at ovh, after a reboot the system went into rescue

We suspect that a main partition that was full earlier (maybe during an update ?) caused the problem

We can still access the system in rescue mode via SSH and via KVM when booting from the HDD

In rescue mode the sda1 partition can be mounted

In hdd boot mode we get to the grub> command line

This behaviour appeared after trying to reinstall grub in rescue [login to view URL]

We need urgent support, as it difficult to get a new server online from OVH with the same specs in a decent time frame
