It seems you do not pass any information about the root device?

The kernel first complains about this, end then:

> [  131.022411] Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:                                                            

..then it prints a pretty clear error message:

	Please append a correct "root=" boot option

What exactly is difficult to understand in this message?

Best regards,
