Hmmm ...

You should get a screen that has a kernel name and is blue, at that
screen, you should be able to press any key and then select a kernel
before the kernel actually starts booting.

Does that work?

The other issue sounds like maybe you have a custom built kernel driver
that you need to build for your new kernel before you boot (maybe a
SCSI/RAID driver)?
