currently your report is pretty useless.
but the best assumption is that your root device name changed
from /dev/hdaX to /dev/sdaX or so
maybe you also just added some external usb disc that reoders the
and no that is not a bug, the kernel *never* guaranteed strict
device ordering. so use UUID in your bootloader config and fstab
and be happy.
