This doesn't match your grub.conf file, where /boot is /dev/sda2.

Note that GRUB partition notation "(hd0,1)" is /dev/sda2, and the
GRUB "root" parameter specifies the /boot partition, NOT the / partition.

So, if /dev/sda1 _really_ is your /boot partition (and I assume it is
because you mounted it manually), then edit grub.conf to contain

  root (hd0,0)

which is /dev/sda1.
