Can anyone help?
probably your entire configuration in /etc/fstab or boot loader conf file is incorrect (/etc/lilo.conf or /boot/grub/menu.lst)
to solve it just boot from any livecd, mount partition and replace all /dev/hda* entries to /dev/sda* and it should work fine. if not post your conf. files mentioned in above post
