Hi @phamphihungbk

It looks like you have a corrupted initramfs. You should open a ticket with support (via the control panel) and request the “Recovery Image”. That would make it possible to boot up the server, but you would probably need to setup a new server and migrate all your data and configuration from the old one - unless you’re experienced in debugging CentOS, then you might be able to recover.
