"normally", I've seen this message when the kernel could not mount its root fs.
Of course, maybe there really is no init file to run after the kernel

Do you have a /sbin/init?

Like the David said, to determine the source of the problem you need to detail
a bit more (what are you trying to do, any relevant boot messages etc.).
