should work :)

I can attach additional logs, if needed, let me know if you want any.

Can you switch over to tty2 and attempt to mount / using various filesystem types? In particular, I'm curious if it mounts as ext2.
The first partition was broken, I suppose it was overwritten by the last one when it "attempted to access beyond the end of device" (see end of the first comment).
When I removed the last partition and reformatted / as ext3, everything worked.
