Instead of selecting one of the grub options, go into the grub console
(press 'c') and type these commands one after another.

May be one of them tells you what's wrong.
If not, use "boot" as last command and it should boot.
(if the kernel starts but the initrd fails to find /, that's
another kind of issue).

One good thing of the grub console is that if you write
  root (hd
and press tab, it will autocomplete with possible choices; the same for
  root (hd0,
  kernel /
  kernel /vml

Best regards.
