You are overlooking the OP's real problem, but maybe you can help here
where I fail.

The problem is that he has his root file system on LVM, and is unable to
mount his boot partition, which was therefore never updated with new
kernels and menu.lst.  If you can solve the issue of /boot not mounting
(see previous messages for details) grub will be snap to fix.
