 - the bios may not be set correctly to find
the device.

 - you may have changed it but not saved it (ditto
on the partition table).

 - you may have the root/boot partitions in
fstab wrong (i never use UUIDs but make partition
labels instead and use those).

 - error in preseed file which put something in
a different location than intended.

 - grub may not have done what you expected.
