I had a similar problem excdpt that I was doing a new install and have 4
disk drives, 3 sata and and IDE. Done the same as you with no results. I
then disconnected the other 3 drives and tried again with the recover,
same thing. I then done a reinstall and it then worked.

When it was not working I looked at the boot menu.lst. It had root
(/dev/sda2) and other strangeness. After the reinstall on the single
disk, it was back to the normal {hd0,1)
