Look in tty3 for logs showing problems. Try booting with teh 'debug'
argument for more logging if you need it.
Under the hood, if your stuck at this step, it means it can't find
/target/vmlinuz or /target/vmlinux . It is also looking for a file
/target/usr/share/modconf/descr.gz . You might be able to fake it
We need more inforrmation to diagnose this -- please follow up when
you have investigated a bit more, given this information.
