        insmod multiboot2
        insmod lvm
        insmod part_msdos
        insmod raid
        insmod mdraid
        set root='(md/1)'
        search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set
        echo 'Loading multiboot kernel ...'
        multiboot (md/1)/boot/xen.gz placeholder dom0_mem=1024M loglevel=9
        echo 'Loading initial kernel ...'
        module (md/1)/boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0 placeholder
root=UUID=8809ff98-9ce8-472a-9ae9-74b821fe5285 ro quiet console=tty0
        echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
        module (md/1)/boot/initrd.img-3.0.0

Can you please add debug and loglevel=9 to the guest kernel command line
options and then post the output of the guest booting?
It might help to setup the guest to use the emulated serial.
Also it would be helpful if you could post the output of xenstore-ls run on
the host.
