/dev/scsi-2221b000155f5d2d4-partX is bogus! Your root device /dev/sda2
actually is edd-int13_dev80-part2, specifically it is
/dev/disk/by-id/edd-int13_dev80-part2.  You should replace /dev/sdaX
with /dev/disk/by-id/edd-int13_dev80-partX

Also, make sure that what ever you replace with is a valid name. For
example, /dev/scsi-2221b000155f5d2d4-partX will NOT exist on your
system where as /dev/disk/by-id/edd-int13_dev80-part2 should exist.
