Unable to boot the server after executing the "fsck" command

I am unable to boot the Red hat Linux Machine.
“linux rescue” command is working but not the “init 6“ or “init 0”

Unable to find the /boot Partition and /etc/fstab,/etc/initab
Unable to find the “/mnt/sysimage”

Below is the filesystem currently available

Sh3.00# df –h
Filesystem size used Avail use Mounted on
Rootfs 6.0M 3.5M 2.3M 61% /
/dev/root.old 6.0M 3.5M 2.3M 61% /
/tmp/loop0 171M 171M 0 100% /mnt/runtime

Please help me to slove the issue.

With Regards,
Mahesh Babu.

If you do "fsck" when the disk is mounted, it will cause severe file system damaged as warned by fsck.

Restore your backup. If you don't have one then you know now why it is good to have one. Otherwise reinstalling is the only option to get back to a known good system.
By the way, it is not intended to start the system to the runlevels 0 or 6, just because runlevel 0 is the runlevel which shuts down the system and runlevel 6 the one that reboots the system.

Or, try inserting a live-cd of another distribution and run "fsck" to fix the hdd again, Make sure it is recursive and verbose. Once, done. Remove the disc and reboot. It *MIGHT* fix it.

Does it get passed the grub stage? Have you tried re-installing the GRUB anyway?..

also this "might" help.
