Cannot book into LTS or even failsafe: /sbin/init does not exist

I have been having issues booting into everything other the standard kernel.

This is the output I get when trying to boot:
http://i50.tinypic.com/eg67nq.jpg

Follwoing this the machine becomes completely unresponsive - to the point where the power switch does not work and I have to wait for the battery to run dry (several hours).

This issue has been happening for a while, at first it was just the mainline kernels from AUR, and those I compiled myself. I ignored this.

Now, I get this error again a few days ago with the LTS kernel and now even into the failsafe with the standard kernel.

Again, the standard kernel entry boots perfectly fine.

What is causing this and how do I fix it?

Thank you.

Re: Cannot book into LTS or even failsafe: /sbin/init does not exist

Does it boot if you use "init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd" in your boot parameters?

Sorry, I forgot to mention, I'm using grub2 and systemd.
