[SOLVED] - Arch Boot Error: Unable to find Root Device /dev/sdb1

I had Arch running perfectly using /dev/sdb1 (versus Disk Label or UUID) and decided to do a update.  After the Update I can't boot
to a running system, and I get this error message:

ERROR: Unable to find root device /dev/sdb1 
You are being dropped into a recovery shell.

Is there an easy way to convert to UUID or Disk Label since the latest Upgrade doesn't allow me to continue to use /dev/sdb1 ??
I'd prefer not to have to rebuild both USB Flash Drives to get functional systems.

Any Help is greatly appreciated.

Suggestions?

Larry

Karol,
Thanks.  I followed the instructions and both USB Flash Drives are booting and working.  WHEW!
I am sure glad I didn't have to start from scratch.
