Check that not only /etc/rc.d/rc exists inside the guest,
but also the interpreter (e.g. /bin/bash) and the required
libraries to execute them.

Could be a number of different issues, starting from
incorrect permissions over barrier flags in the wrong
places to missing binary compatibility (x86 guests on
a x86_64 only kernel).

Probably the best way (if you can trust the guest) is
to chroot into the guest dir and take a look around to see
if everything is in place and can execute.
