Fstab Problem

This will probably turn out to be a forehead slapping red faced problem, but this used to work.

I Had a Debian v-8.x catastrophe and had to reinstall. I have several hard drives on the computer and, of course the installer only found /dev/sda.

Here are the results of blkid:

comp@AbNormal:~$ sudo blkid
[sudo] password for comp:
/dev/sdb1: UUID="d65867da-c658-4e35-928c-9dd2d6dd5742" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="0003d403-01" /dev/sdb2: UUID="007c1f16-34a4-438c-9d15-e3df601649ba" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="0003d403-02" /dev/sda1: UUID="3a2e7e1d-3365-447b-85c5-f454a2f0b446" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="cdf775c6-01" /dev/sda5: UUID="92727ce9-2cff-40f5-b6d0-e9580afdeef3" TYPE="swap" PARTUUID="cdf775c6-05"

I edited fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

The problem is, that when I reboot the system it doesn't like the new fstab entries and halts. It's easy to fix in recovery mode by commenting out the new lines, but that doesn't solve the problem.

My computer log doesn't record what actions I might had to take to get this to work the last time it. happened.

What have I missed?

Thanks in advance.
