need help getting compiled kernel running

So, I think i've compiled close to 15 kernels now and none of them are working. I've tried adding in the most random things to get it to boot, but in general I get the same error:

Kernel Panic -> not syncing: VFS :Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

or some slight variation. I'm at a lost as to what to do, please help, if you need output of a different file let me know.


config file:

dmesg output:

lsmod output:

lspci output:

Did you specify the root device in your boot loader? Did you compile the filesystem built into the kernel or as a module? If you made it a module, you need to create a ramdisk.
