btrfs error: btrfs file system prevents booting

User-Agent: Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux i686; U; de) Presto/2.9.168 Version/11.51
- openSUSE 11.4 + KDE 4.7.1 as a Hostsystem for VirtualBox (4.1.x).
- Live-CD GNOME 3.2 openSUSE 12.1 Beta-1 (32-Bit) (Build315)
Booting from Live Medium, install this "btrfs" as the default file system. Partitioning of openSUSE taken, installation proceeds without error until the system reboots. Boot process aborts suddenly and stops.
The following message is displayed: "Waiting for Device /dev/disk/buy-uuid/12345 to appear .......(...) could not find /dev/disk/buy-uuid/12345. Want me to fall back to UUID=06fcf804-a96a-xxxx-xxx-xxx? (Y/n)"
Will be continued until further boot process if (Y/n) "Enter" to confirm. This procedure must be repeated at every system startup.
This error is found with KDE and GNOME live CD if Btrfs is used as a file system.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. press "Escape"
3. see message
use no btrfs file system

What does the 12345 uuid mean? I remember seeing this long long ago but don't remember what was the outcome.

Judging on the google results ("btrfs 12345"), it could be a default value in YaST:
(that's a commit in the SLE 11 SP2 branch - you should probably check the YaST code in 12.1)
This still happens with openSUSE 12.1 RC1
I have just installed rc1 64bit gnome livecd with btrfs and am experiencing this bug
i changed in /boot/grub/menu.lst
"kernel /vmlinuz-3.1.0-rc9-1-desktop root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/12345"
"kernel /vmlinuz-3.1.0-rc9-1-desktop root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/'UUID of disk'"
now it works
with openSUSE 12.1 RC2 it works
fixed, works now!
