Hi, everyone, I continue to struggle with this install, I'm at the point where I can boot my new kernel, however, it's not booting, it gives me this error at boot.

According to the error, it's unable to mount the root fs, which I don't understand, as I have it mounted while chrooted in with no problem.

Not sure where I'm going wrong, but I'm fairly certain that I'm not ready to boot yet, as I haven't gotten Mate installed yet, and it would be nice to have a desktop environment. Am I able to install Mate while chrooted in? Plus, I can't remember the site I used to input the dialog of lspci -n in order to install the proper drivers into the kernel.

I sure appreciate any and all help I can get here!

Thanks

Todd

Is your root partition really sdd4?

It is possible your drives are enumerated differently with your kernel, what is the root= parameter passed to the kernel? You should use PARTUUID with multiple drives.

It is entirely possible. According to the grub.cfg file, it appears that the parameter is root='hd3,gpt2'. It also appears that it's using uuid, instead of PARTUUID. Please forgive my inexperience with this, but is there a way to correct this?
