Boot problem on CentOS 6.5

My server can't boot.
Can anyone give some hints or advice about how to fix it?


error message:
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

init didn't start or was killed. There are may possible reasons; ensure that startup messages are actually displayed on the console and check if you find any messages prior to the panic.

You can also try to boot into one of the recovery modes and try to find out at what point in the startup process the panic occurs.

For more information about this panic, see also and numerous documents on the internet.
