Had the same problem after a Factory update. The system says waiting for device
/dev/disk/xxx to appear. Then waiting for /dev/hda7 to appear both fails.

I could fix the problem with a different kernel. The default kernel lacks
module support for filesystem reiserfs, which is supported by the pae kernel.

So the bug is that update selects the wrong kernel for systems with reiserfs.

Some info:
joe@joe:/lib/modules/2.6.27.7-9-default> find . | grep reiser
joe@joe:/lib/modules/2.6.27.7-9-default> cd ../2.6.27.7-9-pae/
joe@joe:/lib/modules/2.6.27.7-9-pae> find . | grep reiser
/kernel/fs/reiserfs
/kernel/fs/reiserfs/reiserfs.ko
joe@joe:/lib/modules/2.6.27.7-9-pae>

/etc/fstab:
/dev/hda7 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda5 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda6 swap swap pri=42 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0

/boot/grub/menu.lst: (The first two sections fail to boot. The third works)
