When you followed cheesyboofs tutorial, did you accidentally run:

ln -s /boot /boot

instead of:

ln -s /boot /mnt/fatx/e

? Do a "ls -l /boot" and see if there's a softlink in there pointing to itself.

I followed cheesyboofs guide on full native install, and never got past the mounting and copying of rootfs.

This is normal, basically its so that if you have a separate boot partition, you can still reference "/boot/kernel". It means that no matter how your partition layout is configured, your kernel will always be available from "/boot/kernel".
