Hi everyone...for the love of everything somebody please help!! Im no sure if this is posted in the right area/page/etc ... and forgive me...but im so lost and frustrated...
I have kali linux installed on a laptop, I just did an expensive course, it was great, i have alot of programs i made i cant get back etc etc.. advancved users have mercy, sometimes a little knowledge is dangerous and im learning... so Best I can tell, the only 2 fatal things that happened was I was trying to run a script on startup, I was googling so many things, I may have edited something in like /systemd/system .. ?? (nothing will be very helpful, im new, advanced users may be able to figure this out and i was looking at a lot of "init" files ... init.rc ?? init.d ?? something... i have a vauge recollection whatever file it was was only present in /root ?? maybe? ... things were well (I hadnt rebooted) i did other stuff for hours, at one point the computer seemed to hang, I think it was running a program and i was (i know I know) lazy and it wouldnt give me control so i hard rebooted (I know..) , and .. maybe expectedly...it now seems to boot up, load grub, then exit to a (initramfs) prompt .... the error is:
run-init: cant't execute '/sbin/init': No such file or directory
Target filesystem doesn't have requested /sbin/init.
run-init: can't execute '/sbin/init': No such file or directory
run-init: can't execute '/etc/init': No such file or directory

No init found. Try passing init= bootarg.
BusyBox v1.30.1 (Debian 1:1.30.1-4) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
Then im stuck at this prompt. If it enter 'exit' ...
Then it continues with Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000100
I have been looking online for answers for days now, I have tried fsck, I have booted from live usb and run the gparted check on the volume,
I am so lost and frustrated and have no idea what to do or where to go next, ive watched every youtube i can find ...
