I have BerryBoot installed on my Pi, which works as expected.

However when booting into my Raspbian image, the OS fails to initialize with the following output:

Mounting image Debian_Wheezy_Raspbian_2012.09.img240...
Mounting RW data directory on top
mount: mounting none on /aufs failed: Invalid argument
mount: mounting /dev on dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /sys on sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on proc failed: No such file or directory
Starting operating system Debian_Wheezy_Raspbian_2012.09.img240...
BusyBox v1.20.1 (2012-11-25 00:27:52 CET) multi-call binary.

Usage: switch_root [-c /dev/console] NEW_ROOT NEW_INIT [ARGS]

Free initramfs and switch to another root fs:
chroot to NEW_ROOT, delete all in /, move NEW_ROOT to /,
execute NEW_INIT. PID must be 1. NEW_ROOT must be a mountpoint.

        -c DEV  Reopen stdio to DEV after switch

Edit: I think it might because I'm using an old version of BerryBoot.

Updating BerryBoot to the latest version fixed the problem.
