[Xen-users] VmError: Boot loader didn't return any data!

Last week this domU was starting fine, I may have done an upgrade with apt (I don't remember), but now it won't start.

dom0: Debian Squeeze x64
domU: Ubuntu 12.04 Server x64

When I try to start it, I get VmError: Boot loader didn't return any data! Here's the content of xend.log:

VmError: Boot loader didn't return any data!

Through some googling, This is apparently a relatively common problem.  I tried mounting the domU LV, removed grub2 and installed grub, but to no avail.  Any suggestions?
