Grub can read a file system without mounting. The root command does a
mount. Rootnoverify does not attempt mount, it just makes the call
based on what it reads from the table. For reasons sometimes
impossible to explain, rootnoverify works when root does not....Also
try this using (hd0,5) and /dev/sda6.

I must have missed your reply that this too failed. Or did it?
