Thanks for your answer. I've already known the second link, I tried it out.
I installed grub-legacy, and it works now. Maybe the syntax of the grub2 confused me, because, as I see now, in my post there is a kernel command, but it is a grub1 command in a grub2 config file. I don't want to try it out now, but maybe grub2 would work for me with the replaced command. It is not a xen related problem, it's my error. The only xen related problem is that I have to use 'module' parameters in order to boot the xen kernel.

Thanks, Tamas.

Subject: [Xen-users] grub boot problem



I have a XEN installation on Debian Lenny. After a package update I rebooted, and grub doesn't start. The update replaced my grub.cfg, but it doesn't work. When I installed the system, I ran into that problem (grub error message "You need to load the kernel first"). At that time I found a solution, changed grub.cfg, and it worked. I tried that settings again, but it doesn't work! I get the error:
error: unknown command `module'
I can boot only the unmodified kernel. Here is my grub.cfg:
#bad entry:
menuentry "Debian GNU/Linux, linux 2.6.26-2-xen-amd64" {
    set root=(hd0,1)
    search --fs-uuid --set 81a70335-a810-444e-9247-1255491ff0ee
    kernel /xen-3.2-1-amd64.gz dom0_mem=512M
    module /vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64 root=/dev/mapper/xen-xensys ro
    module /initrd.img-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64
##    linux    /vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64 root=/dev/mapper/xen-xensys ro 
##    initrd    /initrd.img-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64
#working entry:
menuentry "Debian GNU/Linux, linux 2.6.26-2-amd64" {
    set root=(hd0,1)
    search --fs-uuid --set 81a70335-a810-444e-9247-1255491ff0ee
    linux    /vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-amd64 root=/dev/mapper/xen-xensys ro 
    initrd    /initrd.img-2.6.26-2-amd64

Thanks, in advance.
