I prepared another USB key which boots fine in my laptop, boots fine in
the other laptop native (i.e. without VM-player); but in the
VM-player and in an older laptop of my wife it can't mount the root file
system on boot; it says:

umass0: SCSI over Bulk-Only; quirks = 0x000
Root mount waiting for; usbus1
aumass0:1:0:-1 Attached to scbus1
uhub_explore:592: illegal enable change, port 1
da0at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
da0: <Intenso Premium 0.00> Remobeable Direct Access SCSI-2 device
da0: 40.000MB/s travsfer
da0: 7701MB (... byte per sector info)
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/da0s1a

Manual root file system specification...

when I specify manually the root as 'ufs:/dev/da0s1a' the same message
comes again;

looks like some timing problem, or? this is with 8-CURRENT based on CVS
of March 2009.

Any hints?
