I had a similar problem 2 days ago, one usb partition as /dev/sda1, boot
stopped with an error, I do not remember but related to a missing device.
Rebooting solved the problem.

Using the alternative ramdisk-generator yaird also solves issues like
this - but really: Both rebooting and yaird is merely _workarounds_, not
real bugfixes.

I had a similar problem 2 days ago, one usb partition as /dev/sda1, boot

stopped with an error, I do not remember but related to a missing device.

Rebooting solved the problem.

My solution is to insert:

******* echo -e "33[1;33;40mSelf-imposed wait of 10s...(12/02/08)33[0;37;40m"
******* /bin/sleep 10.0

just ahead of

******* wait_for_udev 10


in /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local function mountroot (). But I don't think I should have to do that.
