Default Installing Crux on a Compaq 615 Laptop

Hello!

Recently I have been trying to install Crux on my laptop(Compaq 615) with poor results. Everything goes smooth during the partitioning, installation and making of the kernel, but when I reboot the system this pops up:

Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unkown-block(8,1)
Pid: 1, comm: swapper Not tainted 2.6.35.6 #1
Call Trace:
[<c11f26cb>] ? panic+0x4a/0xaf
[<c12f6ad7>] ? mount_block_root+0x1d5/0x1e9
[<c12f6be9>] ? mount_root+0x39/0x4d
[<c12f6d3a>] ? prepare_namespace+0x13d/0x163
[<c12f6863>] ? kernel_init+0x195/0x1a0
[<c12f66ce>] ? kernel_init+0x0/0x1a0
[<c1002b56>] ? kernel_thread_helper+0x6/0x10

First I tried compiling my fs into the kernel instead of having it as a module, to no avail, still the same issue. So I scouted the net for several days and got a lead that the SATA controller could be the issue at hand. So I did the same there, marked the SATA options with (*).. but the problem continues. Has anyone got a clue on what could be causing this? This particular computer has run everything from Arch to Ubuntu so it would seem weird that there would be a deadend with using Crux.

Here's my lspci:
