It looks like sfdisk detected a /sda4, but not fdisk.

Just to leave no stone unturned, how would you feel doing a e2fsck -f -ckPv /dev/sda3 :?:

I can't think of anything else at this time. When I had that error with sabayon, the kernel continued on its way after entering the root block device /dev/sda3.

OK, a funny thing happened; I basically went back to my kernel config file, went over practically every device driver option and set the ones I needed as built-in.

Now the kernel boots.

So I must not have set an option correctly.

In short, SOLVED.

Thank you for all of your help.

Good to hear you got it going :D

Do you remember which ones you changed :?: I'm looking at it here and didn't notice anything that would cause that error, but maybe because it's on the hyper-v :?

Yes, I believe one of the Hyper-V utility drivers wasn't set, and that needs to be loaded for the storage modules to work.

I'll bet that was the scsi storage in device drivers

Symbol: HYPERV_STORAGE [=n] │
│ Type : tristate │
│ Prompt: Microsoft Hyper-V virtual storage driver │
│ Defined at drivers/scsi/Kconfig:650 │
│ Depends on: SCSI_LOWLEVEL [=n] && SCSI [=y] && HYPERV [=n] │
│ Location: │
│ -> Device Drivers │
│ -> SCSI device support │
│ -> SCSI low-level drivers (SCSI_LOWLEVEL [=n]) │


I was just going to suggest that when I saw you got it working
