[yocto] Invalid configuration from end user prevents continuing

I'm trying to get yocto to run from a hard disk.  It's not finishing the boot process. Research suggests that there is some problem around the rootfs.

Here is a screenshot of where the boot is stuck (also attached to this email)


grub.cfg looks like this:

serial --speed=115200 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal_input --append  serial
terminal_output --append serial
set timeout=1
menuentry 'yocto' {
linux /boot/yocto_bzImage root=/dev/xvda1 rw console=ttyS0,115200

To make this system boot, I did the following:
1: boot ubuntu
2: delete everything except the /boot directory from ubuntu’s root partition
3: mount the rootfs image that was generated by yocto
4: copy all files from the mounted rootfs image onto the hard drive root partition
5: replace the grub.cfg with the one shown above.

It should work I imagine…..

I guess that an invalid configuration from me is preventing it continuing.  Trouble is I am not sure what I have configured wrong.

I'm not sure what I can do to take a next step in resolving this.  Does anyone have any suggestions? thanks.
