I assume you are using SATA drives, right. Are you using LVM?
Please post the complete system configuration.

Please do the following:
When grub shows, select Edit (E), and remove the "rhgb quiet" from the
kernel command line; now select Boot (B).
It should give you more information on what failing.
Does the kernel detect the drives? does it detect the SATA/IDE chipset?
If using LVM, does the lvm scan fail?
