DragonFlyBSD was installed on a SATA disk which was part of the
system. After installation the system booted up fine.

The system was shutdown and the SATA disk was removed and placed
in a USB disk enclosure.

Now the system was powered on and 'boot from USB boot disk' was
selected. The BTX loader worked, so did the initial boot up
sequence until the step of mounting the partition, where it
panic'd at the 'root mount'.

Is there a workaround to fix this issue ?

You might have to tweak the following things:

* vfs.root.mountfrom in /boot/loader.conf
* dumpdev in /etc/rc.conf
* the entries in /etc/fstab

It's likely your device name changed to something like ad8.
