This is not a bug nor is this bugtracker a support venue. If you need support then please use either the centos mailing list, the Freenode IRC channel #centos or the CentOS forums.

You cannot transplant a disk containing a CentOS linux system into another machine with different hardware without rebuilding the initramfs file. You can boot the rescue kernel which should be listed on the grub menu and once that is booted, use that to rebuild the initiramfs for the latest kernel you have installed. You could also yum update from there and get the latest kernel and the installation of that will build the initramfs file tailored for the current hardware. A yum reinstall of the current kernel will also do that.
