Try booting single user, or with init=/bin/bash. You should be able to
circumvent whatever is failing ,unless the disk is really messed up.

There was a pretty major change to the way the kernel and firmware
interact at firmware version 2.0.6. Basically to go beyond that,
requires a newer kernel, and vice versa. So the fact that it works
with 2.0.4 (and presumably an older kernel) doesn't help you much to
boot a recent image.
