error on sid laptop: ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/493.....085 does not exist.

I've recently been unable to boot into my thinkpad x200s because
of this error: ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/493....085b does not exist. Dropping
to a shell!

Most of the Google results are of users changin out disks or partitions and
the UUID get messed up. I haven't switched any disks or messed with any

Mounted the disk on desktop to grab the grub.cfg and fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=493046dc-a036-499a-8e17-33f19a65085b /               ext3
errors=remount-ro 0       1

# /home was on /dev/sda6 during installation
UUID=ceea9138-fcca-4342-b4b1-abba566e947b /home           ext3    defaults
0       2

# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=b1946e5e-e4ee-4113-82b4-7a40aecf7935 none            swap    sw
0       0
/dev/sdb1       /media/usb0     auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0

I'd figure I'd ask the list first before I royally screw something up. Any
