How to solve this CentOS 6.5 kernel panic?


I have a physical Windows Server 2003 machine that works as the host of a Centos 6.5 virtual machine that runs in Virtualbox. My server got a virtual memory error and restarted without letting me turn off  my CentOS, now I'm getting the following Kernel panic (I suppose that is a virtual disk problem, see the attached image).

I tried to use the kernel startup argument selinux=0 but it didn't work.

Does anybody knows the possible solution?

Your virtual disk is corrupted.

Restore from backup, or you could possibly mount in another linux computer, and run a disk check,

You probably have to edit /etc/selinux/config - a dirty shutdown causes the line
SELINUX=enforcing and SELINUXTYPE=permissive

where the default is
SELINUX=permissive and SELINUXTYPE=permissive
Along the same lines using boot the VM using centos ISO/livecd and perform the fsck check in the boot, / file systems after you make sure there is no issue in the host with its filesystem....
Your initrd is damaged
Boot with any previous kernel
yum remove current (broken, not one you booted) kernel
Upgrade kernel (or preferably whole system to 6.7)
Reboot with new kernel
