Default Similar problem

I was having a similar problem with the error about the resume device. I resolved this problem by unpacking the initrd file and editing the init file to remove the reference. Instructions for unpacking/repacking the initird are here:

I also converted all UUID references in /etc/fstab to /dev/sda references.

I still get the error "could not find filesystem '/dev/root'".

The grub/menu.lst entry is this:
title Fedora OpenVZ (2.6.18-92.1.1.el5.028stab057.2)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.1.el5.028stab057.2 ro root=/dev/sda2 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-92.1.1.el5.028stab057.2.img

/dev/sda2 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda5 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/sda1 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2

/dev/sda2 / ext3 rw 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/sda5 /home ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/sda1 /boot ext3 rw 0 0

output from mount is similar.
