    This is usually a sign that the drive couldn't be found.

    If you are booting from usb on a custom made kernel, make sure that you included all the drivers needed to load your usb storage device, and all the needed filesystem drivers.

    Make sure that they are either in the kernel itself compiled statically, or on an initrd image. If they are compiled as modules, the kernel will not see them because, well, it can't reach the filesystem.

    That, of you specified the wrong root or real_root in your kernel boot line.
