Depending on what's broken, it may be that the kernel used to be in an 
earlier section of the flash drive, and (part of) the kernel was saved 
to a different area when you copied the new one over.  The kernel code 
isn't involved at this stage, so I don't think there's anything you can 
do in the kernel compile.  Grub is saying that it can't read the (whole) 
kernel file because it can't make a request for the sectors containing 
the file.
