Read-only in the wrong location

I'm now building 32-bit to accommodate some programs that will only work in a 32-bit system. Under VMWare, right after it checks the filesystems things go haywire. For some strange reason, the root filesystem is left mounted read-only and most oddly / is misidentified as /dev/sda1 and it's mounted on /boot and not on /. You can see it here: http://pasteboard.co/1WHWdz2A.png
Grub.cfg and /etc/fstab follow:

Code:
set timeout=3

  insmod part_msdos
  insmod ext2
  set root=(hostdisk//dev/sda,msdos1)
  search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set ea1ec171-b9e3-41b9-a361-d0743aa8336a
if loadfont /grub/unifont.pf2; then
   set gfxmode=text
   insmod all_video
   terminal_output gfxterm
fi

set menu_color_normal=cyan/blue
set menu_color_highlight=blue/cyan

menuentry "Funtoo Linux  - kernel-genkernel-x86-3.19.3-1~exp1" {
  insmod part_msdos
  insmod ext2
  set root=(hostdisk//dev/sda,msdos1)
  search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set ea1ec171-b9e3-41b9-a361-d0743aa8336a
  linux /kernel-genkernel-x86-3.19.3-1~exp1 root=/dev/sda3 rootfstype=ext4
  initrd /initramfs-genkernel-x86-3.19.3-1~exp1
  set gfxpayload=keep
}
set default=0


Code:
/dev/sda1      /boot      ext2      noatime   1 2
/dev/sda2      none      swap      sw      0 0
/dev/sda3      /      ext4      noatime      0 1

so the assumption is,
1) is this Funtoo?
2) is the initramfs creation tool part of Funtoo?

Unfortunately I don't know how the initramfs generation tool is on Funtoo and it could be at fault getting the partitions confused. But there is where I don't know further... can you live without initramfs If you get rid of your initrd, does it work?

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Unsupported Software.

to avoid gentoo users being mislead by a potential solution that has only been tested on Funtoo

You're right. My bad. I toggle between Funtoo and Gentoo, so I get them mixed up sometimes. This one is Funtoo-specific, https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-2962
