comment After installing a new Kernel in Ubuntu 14.04, rebooting takes me to busybox initramfs. How do I mount a filesystem after that?
modprobe won't return anything if it's successful, but it would have created devices under /dev for the SATA disks if it found them. All you have to do after modprobe is type exit if the correct devices were found. If you have IDE drives, you should try to modprobe ide-disk. You can safely modprobe both and one or the other will most likely create the appropriate /dev files. One modprobe is complete, try typing exit.

You are probably missing the kernel modules for your Disk controller. Is it using SATA or IDE? Try modprobe ahci and see if /dev/sda shows up. If so, you can just type exit and let the boot continue;

comment Swap to RAM, or not
My horrible, horrible work around to keep Chrome reasonable is to bring up Chrome's built-in Task Manager and kill processes for Tabs I am not using. I can later reload those tabs and get them back without the hassle of completely closing and reopening Chrome all the time.
