There is an option '--noscripts' which allows you to skip
scripts in case of errors.  Installing glibc does
re-execute init.

How about booting with 'init=/bin/bash'?

Could you be more specific what "not help" means (and stop
top-posting)?  Rescue disk should use its own libraries.
At least this is the case if you will boot from an installation
disk with 'linux rescue'.  Mount your disks writable, i.e.
"Continue" when asked.  rpm has an option '--root' which
allows you to change a tree which will be affected by operations
so you can fix things if you really have a mess on your hands.

If you cannot boot "rescue" then you likely have a hardware
problem.
