All these messages are harmless. The latest version of udev (0.084-5) 
fixes this again.

This is the only real problem and is also a known issue fixed in latest 
udev. To work around it:
- check if 'ls /dev/sd*' actually shows /dev/sda5 or not;
- if it does, try typing exit at the shell prompt and the boot will
  probably complete normally
- if not, try 'cat /proc/modules'; is any module you need missing?
  if it is, try modprobing it, see if /dev/sda comes available and
  again type exit to continue the boot

This assumes you don't use RAID or LVM, in that case it might be a bit
