Booting hang up after mounting root device, no kernel panic?


ive copied a running lfs system from my pc's hdd to an cf-card for an thin client pc. Ive build a seperated kernel and stuff and fit the fstab table for the thin client.
The first boot works, but after an reboot the client hangs up after mounting the root fs, halting the hdd's and continue with rebootings all the time.
What could it be?

Ive found out, that after the first boot the udev rules are changed (what is normal because of the different hardware?),but the old hardware from the build host is still present in the config, maybe this is an problem?

Easier if you install to cfcard, than to try & copy an installed system.

(You will probably have more troubles later.)
