I am getting exactly the same output from the F11 cloned initialization you describe.
I have installed a new SATA drive and cloned the F11 system on it. There are 3 partitions /boot / and /home.
I have made the new disk bootable and first BIOS boot priority, installed grub on /boot and made the necessary modifications to the grub device table, UUIDs, etc. and made a new initrd on /boot. and a new /etc/fstab on / with the right stuff.
Grub works fine from the new disk, and with kernel parameters rhgb and quiet removed I get the same output that you describe.
The thing I noticed is that the booting kernel is not seeing the new drive (the one it is booting from). It only sees ata0 (/dev/sda) and ata1 (/dev/sdb). I don't see any entries for sata2 (/dev/sdc).
If I use the super grub cd, I can boot into the original F11 system fine, and the new /dev/sdc is there, (I can mount partitions on it, etc.) All the partitions are shown if I issue the blkid command.
Look at your initialization messages and see if your kernel sees the drive you're booting to.
