I changed to vda2 but now Linux isnt booting at all. When the console connects to iSreies then the screen is blank. The errors that were being given initially are not appearing now. I am totally stuck.
Please help in this regard.

This should be vda2 ...

Linux did boot, it just could not find its root file system ...
