System frozen during bootup after entering encryption password


This is the first time I’ve encountered this issue with EnOS. I shut down my system so that I could unplug my hardware to do some cable management. When I was finished, I plugged everything back in, booted up and upon entering the encrypted drive password, I’m now stuck for about 10 mins staring at this screen. It seems I have no choice but to hardware power off my computer. I guess my concern and curiosity is if it’s harmful to my system in anyway at all to hardware power off in this state?

You aren’t updating anything, so you should be fine.
