But, there are 2 places that cause kernel panic:

1) grub's kernel/linux line, the root=/dev/[is_incorrect] parameter
2) fstab's:  [is_incorrect] / root line

Kernel may panic if it can't find its system in (1)
Kernel may find (1), but (2) is wrong

(1) and (2) can even be different if the kernel can use it.
