your blkid outpot and fstab antry for /home:
see the dif.: 7f NOT 7x

your blkid output has no partition with this UUID
yet in fstab you have for swap:
# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
which is correct according to blkid output
# swap was on /dev/sdb7 during installation
which apparently does not exist (anymore, maybe?)

It might be doe you are not using Grub2, but Grub legacy.
In this case you can edit
and remove the entry with non existing (second) swap partition (sdb7)
and double check UUID for /home.

No, it does not - se above.
Hope it helps a bit. Anyway, waiting for some additional suggestions may
be useful.
