Excellent. I suspect the settings in grub.conf was at issue.  Because
unless your new system had the same type of drive (IDE or SATA) on the
same bus, grub.conf would most likely be pointing to the wrong
location for the stage 2 boot loader (hence kernel panic).  By running
the recovery from the boot DVD it no doubt went in and recognized your
hardware,made the proper entries in grub.conf for the stage 2 boot
loader and likely updated your hardware configuration file(s) (I say
likely but I am not certain if it would have done that or if that
would have happened on re-boot).

When I saw all the advice you were getting, knowing a bit more of what
you likely attempted to do, I realized that the advice was given based
on what you provided in this thread but likely without the knowledge
of the background of what you had done.
