I think your "root" parameter in the kernel command is wrong. Here's mine:

title           Debian GNU/Hurd
kernel          (hd0,1)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd0s2
module (hd0,1)/hurd/ext2fs.static \
   --multiboot-command-line=${kernel-command-line} \
   --host-priv-port=${host-port} \
   --device-master-port=${device-port} \
   --exec-server-task=${exec-task} -T typed ${root} \
   $(task-create) $(task-resume)
module (hd0,1)/lib/ /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)
boot your "hd1s7" is likely to be "hd0s7" (assuming you have only one HD, or 
else you installed the GNU system to the 7th partition of your 1st HD).

Hope this helps,
Wei Mingzhi
