I'm using a dell optiplex 755 which I assume needs a standard SATA or IDE driver.

When I was in menuconfig for the kernel I used all defaults.
On my only successful build to boot ... I went looking for devtmpfs and it was checked by default so since then I have never changed any default settings when configuring the kernel build.

I will look into the other suggestions.
