Please help Linux system is down...

System is down, I can't seem to get in. It's VM so I took screen shot and upload the file here. Its a RTF file format.

when system comes up, I did press e then in the middle as you can see, I typed init=/bin/bash, I pressed CTRL -X. Then I should get prompt but not getting that. I get second error message.

After the second error message, I press enter, it takes me to third error message. I am totally lost.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Please do not upload screenshots in document format.

Please attach them as images.

Thanks.

Anyway, these errors look like a hardware malfunction or mis-configuration of some sort. It can't find the files it uses to boot.

For what reason, I can't guess. Boot with a rescue CD and take a look what's there, if anything.

Is it possible the system ran out of disk space? I could not open the document.
