Is this a new installation, or was it previously working?

it was previously working. last time it happened the IT guy started the machine in single and started the services manually.
machine is running on VM, when running Redhat rescue mode it doesn't show the disk
but when started from systemrescue CD i could mount the drive
I found one post that recommends to do chroot /mnt/sysimage but I don't have it mounted on Redhat rescue mode since it doesn't show up the partition.

Can you post the error on the screen? There will be some information there that will help debug.

Have you tried to use emergency boot option from grub?

no, rscue mode you need the cd/dvd
emergency is one of the options, it wont load anything and it'll give you a minimal startup, eg, root will be mounted read only.

Just append "emergency" to the boot option in grub the same way you would for single user mode

Haven't tried "emergency" but once upgraded Rhel with installation CD the issue got solved.
