Udev keeps tract of some hardware. It is mainly so things like
network interfaces and CD/DVD drives retain the same label when you
add new hardware. (It is a pain when you add another NIC, and it
becomes eth0...) You can fix it by deleting the
*-persistent-*.rules. For NICs, it is 70-persistent-net.rules.
Unless you transfered CD/DVD drives with the hard drives, you are
going to find that the CD/DVD symlinks are wrong as well.

That sounds like a good idea. Maybe an option in the rescue mode to
rebuild the initrd image. Also a command in /sbin to delete the
persistent rules...
