You should check the release notes:


Disk devices may change on reboot
    On systems with multiple disk controllers, the kernel/udev may assign a
different device node on reboot of the system than was used during
installation due to difference in load order of drivers. This can lead to
failure to boot the system. In most cases this can be corrected by changing
the bootloader configuration and /etc/fstab, possibly using the rescue mode
of the installer. Note however that this problem may occur again on
subsequent boots.
