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.

Thanx

config file:
pastebin.com/588055

dmesg output:
pastebin.com/588058

lsmod output:
pastebin.com/588060

lspci output:
pastebin.com/588062

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.
