 Sounds as if it can't find the kernel.  If the supplied parameters are
wrong it would start to boot before either ignoring them or worst case
panicking.  You can edit the command line you're trying to boot from to
correct the name of the kernel image if it's just a typo, otherwise
you'll need to give it the correct drive and path to the kernel.

 Stick around, maybe a grub user can help you with this.
