All is OK with vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-amd64, but both 3.16.0-4-amd64 and
3.16.0-5-amd64 fail to load. When equipped with a screen I see it
says Loading .. but it does not complete with no disk activity.
I have an old Atom N450 CPU based NetBook right next to me, running 'jessie' with "3.16.0-5-amd64" kernel.
It was upgraded continuously from "Squeeze" without any issues.
I suggest you to boot with "single" and "debug" kernel parameters, with "quiet" parameter removed and look into log output.
Hopefully that would help to find out where exactly it stops booting process.

With kindest regards, Alexander.
