That's only half the suggestion.

The other half, the easy way, is to install grub. Or, as Mark
suggested, just create a new configuration file (you don't REALLY need
grub installed, just /boot/grub/menu.lst). You MIGHT be able to reboot
the system using the original config file (with kernel and initrd for
installation), and see if it has some kind of option to rescue a
system. Either way (rescue, or mount + chroot), you need to run
"apt-get install grub" (which would install grub and remove grub-pc)
and (possibly) run "update-grub"

The hard way is of course having a version of pygrub that can
recognized grub2 config correctly.

Either way, you can check whether it works by running "pygrub
/path/to/your/domU-disk" (which you've already tried). If you've
configured it correctly you won't get an error.
