I haven't forgotten you. Just a few other chores in real life to do from the "honey-do" list.
How about posting the results from these two commands. Open a terminal and type:
sudo hdparm /dev/sda
After you get the results from that one try this one:
sudo hdparm -i /dev/sda
Let's see if anything jumps out and grabs us.
Also, do you have any usb devices connected to the computer? if so what? Have you tried booting with all the usb devices disconnected except the keyboard and mouse, if they are usb?

My guesses would be:
- make sure no USB storage devices are connected during the boot (it can change the order in which the BIOS assigns these drives... hence making /dev/sda4 something else.., but if you fixed the UUID, then maybe it's not that).
- change the grub entry to replace "quiet splash --" with "noapic noacpi nosplash --"
- check /etc/fstab ... /dev/sda4 should basically show "/" for its mount point. It could also be something wrong with the option, although I don't see why the installer would have messed with them.
- run Ubuntu Gutsy on the computer, if it doesn't work we can then look upstream, if it does it will give us a better idea of what could be wrong.
Just a few guesses as I don't really see what's wrong either yet.
