i modified fstab but it doesn't resolve the problem.
I'm not a linux expert, but i think the problem is very early in the startup phase. /etc/fstab is not accessible if linux can't mount the root partition, is it?
Booting with bootargs 'root=/dev/sdc3 rootdelay=5' i can see following logs:
I see lots of COMRESET failed messages, It's a long time since I've seen those, I don't get them any more.
They are due to a bug in the kernel/CFE that I have been unable to locate/fix, which occurs in a system like yours which has a very high end graphics card, i.e one with a 256bit memory bus - I used to see them with my 4850 - and only 2Gb memory installed.
To fix, either replace your graphics card with a lower one (e.g HD7750) or, probably better for you add 2Gb more memory to your X1000.
IIRC it didn't always boot like that, sometimes it will boot normally, you can try rebooting once you see the COMRESET messages, (Once you see those it won't recover)
In the 1st pic you can see that only one IDE HD on sda (MAXTOR 80GB) is detected and my CompactFlash (32GB) on sdb.
My SATA HDs are not detected at all.
But if i boot from DVD, then all HD are detected (SATA HDs mapped on sda and sdb , IDE HD on sdc and CompactFlash on sdd. From that moment on, i can boot even without DVD after a reset.
After a poweroff the problem come back.
If it always boots OK from the DVD, you could try loading the kernel from there - with bootargs for your hard drive, Possibly CFE is changing something when it loads stuff from the DVD, Hmmm... Hadn't spotted that.
Hope this helps
