I experienced a related problem with a USB2 HDD bridge on which I swapped the
HDD for one which had a previous Fedora install on it.
The symptom was that the /boot partition was not mounted after completion of
boot. Then I noticed an error during the initscripts saying that /BOOT was a
duplicate label and would not be mounted. What was happening is that since
fstab had LABEL=/BOOT in it to specify the correct boot partition
coordinates, it did not know to use the IDE one or the USB one. Luckily it
actually used the IDE one for boot at initrd time since the USB drive/Host
Controller was presumably not up by then.
I changed fstab to identify boot as /dev/hdc1 and the problem went away.
So I think Luciano may have the right idea for the original poster.
