I'd guess your boot line has something like "root=LABEL=/"
and you dont have a filesystem which is marked as label = /

To start, you could either label a filesystem as '/' or, you can just 
change that root= line to point at a real filesystem.

Also, I can see you are still doing your old "ask on the list rather 
than actually work out what the problem is" trick :/
