Did you convert /boot to ext4?  If so, you may need to either convert 
back to ext3 or find a version of GRUB that understands ext4.  Even if 
/boot is on ext3 there may be problems if root is on ext4 and mkinitrd 
is run without the "--with=ext4" switch.

Have you tried booting from installation media in rescue mode?
