A few questions for you.

What version/distribution of Linux are you using?

Are you booting with lilo or grub?

The distro's I'm familiar with keep their boot files in the /boot directory and your system is looking in the /sysroot directory.

By the error message it seems that the kernel is not accepting the init status command which will boot u into the runlevel but it can be because of a missing inode for the kernel. your best bet can be the two choices. rebuild the kernel and do checkhdd for errors before this or a complete reinstallation.
