* mounting local filesystems . . .
Failed to access ' /dev/disk/by-uuid/26CCE5FFCCE5C95F ' no such file or directory
and then i started x as root and ran gparted....it showed my disk as totally blank.... not even my windows partition showed up.

Seems a bit unclear to me but I think you've somehow ended up in UUID hell. Solution for that herehttp://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php ... _a_problem
And please don't start X as root
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
