After upgrading to latest OpenVZ kernel CentOS server won't boot. When i try go boot the latest kernel server is stuck at this point: (note that images are taken from virtual kvm)

Then i try to start the server on some old kernels and than i get this error message:

kernel panic - not syncing - attempted to kill init
