Ubuntu – After GRUB loads linux: No init found


When I start Ubuntu from the grub, I get a strange message, and a medieval prompt as:

No init found

Busybox v1.15.3(ubuntu 1.1.15 3-ubuntu5) built in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of commands


I use a dualboot system, with Ubuntu Meerkat, and Windows 7.
Is there any chance of recovery? Thanks.

EDIT: The PC on a whim decide to boot itself up, and so I couldnt try the solution mentioned below. I will accept the answer anyway.

Boot a ubuntu live cd,open a terminal and run the following

sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sda5
sudo e2fsck -C0 -p -f -v /dev/sda8

Running e2fsck will help you,if not we want to re-install grub.Return back if it din help you.
