OEL 5.9 (Tikanga) 2.6.18-371.

On boot I get the following errors:


exec of init (/sbin/init) failed!!!: No such file of directory

Kernel panic - not syncing - Attempted to kill init!


After this I booted to the OEL 5.9 CD in recovery mode. I tried to chroot to /mnt/sysimage with the following error:

chroot: cannot run '/bin/sh' : No such file or directory

If I cd to /mnt/sysimage all of my files are there in /bin and /sbin (all files appear to be OK permissions and else). I am even able to open a new shell env by executing /mnt/sysimage/bin/sh without any issue.
