Number 3 here is a likely cause, since if you ran "udevstart" while 
chrooted into your new system, but _without_ mounting a tmpfs on /dev, 
then udev put all the device nodes and its database on the _real_ /dev 
directory in your new root filesystem.

You need to make sure that directory has _nothing_ in it except 
/dev/console and /dev/null, and no dot-files.
