As well as the output of "cat /etc/fstab" and "mount -l" when booted
from your current install.

Did you clone your root partition as some point? I'm not familiar with
Partition Manager and its root designation (unless it is a label that
you have given your / partition) but if you have cloned your root
partition changing the uuid of the clone is simple (with ext2/3/4, but
I assume that it is with other filesystems too).
