we can set it and recompile the kernel -- I don't use intel cpus in linux so have no real knowledge -- just guessing -- let me finish reading config there may be other questions

we rebooted.. and it panicked.. and we got back to chroot, one reason why it took me a while to respond previously!! it had to do with the hard drive not being found or something like that, fschk comes clean, e2fschk was taking too long.

my brain needs to run slowly

if you want to pass productive time while I mill around, visit http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-amd64.xml?style=printable&full=1#book_part1_chap8 and redo each step including the emerges and rc-updates just as written. this should pick up any stragglers and get your services to state of the art. I probably reappear in an hour or so.
Code:
emerge -avuND world
can also pass time.

changes from pappy's menuconfig
http://bpaste.net/show/132978/

my version of your config file
http://bpaste.net/show/132979/

for comparison purposes you can use diff or meld or whatever file comparer

suggest
Code:
eselect kernel list
set 3.10.7 if not active;
Code:
 cd /usr/src/linux;make menuconfig
make the changes, exit menuconfig, saving the configuration
I like
Code:
make && make modules_install && make install
which provides a kernel named vmlinuz-..... which some boot loaders look for and a backup copy of the config in /boot
fingers crossed

auddoula,

Panic Message:
unknown-block(0,0)
means that the kernel does not know how to communicated with your HDD.

Your grub.conf is missing an initrd line if you used genkernel. It will not boot without the initrd as a genkernel kernel is fully modular.
The modules needed to mount root are inside it.

If you configured your kernel by hand it has some bits missing.
Pastebin your lspci output and your kernel .config file.
Also tell us the file system you use on root

sh /usr/src/linux-3.10.7-gentoo/arch/x86/boot/install.sh 3.10.7-gentoo arch/x86/boot/bzImage \
System.map "/boot"

Why is the architecture x86 and x86_64??

wgetpaste difference
Your paste can be seen here: http://bpaste.net/show/133003/
