what kind of errors? I would love to see the dump... ;)

so it's getting to the point where it can load the kernel, but can't
run /sbin/init after the kernel is done booting. 

Try booting with: 

linux init=/bin/bash 

and see if that works. Looks like your init package is messed up or
the partition with the init package on it.
