Error: Waiting for /dev/sda5 for 30 seconds...

Hello,

As usual I was updating my system , kernel package was on the list as well. When I reboot and try to get into the system, it gives me the 30s error and cannot find my root partition and drops into rootfs# shell

Solution1: So I made a live usb and booted into it and did following:
mkdir /mnt/arch
mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/arch
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/arch/boot

chroot /mnt/arch /bin/bash
Error: Cannot find /bin/bash(No such file or directory)

Solution2:
I tried using pacstrap as
"pacstrap /mnt/arch linux" --- to install kernel again but it gives me "Call to execv failed..."

Solution3:
Used the blkid command to obtain UUID and manually typed root=UUID=....... on the kernel prompt and still cannot excess the system.

How can I successfully chroot into the system and update my kernel?

Did you try the second method listed here?:

I tried the method but get the following error when using "arch-chroot /mnt" command. I mounted my /root and /boot partition accordingly before doing this.

chroot failed: Cannot find /bin/bash: No such file or directory

That suggests that you've messed up glibc somehow. Did you force anything in the update?

I probably did I guess. I was reading other forums and I suspect that is the case. Is there a way to fix it?
