boot with disk again in rescue mode

check logs (I think <Control><Alt><F3> but could be <Control><Alt><F4>)
and see if the storage is /dev/sda instead of /dev/hda - many storage
devices (especially SATA) will change with the newer kernels).

chroot to installation (chroot /mnt/sysimage)

if that is it...edit /etc/fstab to reflect the changes...

probably not necessary but install grub loader just in case...

grub-install /dev/sda # again assuming that your hard drive is
                      # now /dev/sda and not /dev/hda)
reboot
