That's because your initramfs only contains modules for
2.6.27-7-generic but your Xen kernel is 2.6.28-rc8-tip so the ramdisk
fails to load the modules it needs.
        (initramfs) cd /lib/mo(initramfs) cd /lib/modules/
        (initramfs) ls
        (initramfs) cd (initramfs) cd 2.6.27-7-generic/
        (initramfs) ls
        initrd  kernel
        (initramfs) uname -a
        Linux (none) 2.6.28-rc8-tip #1 SMP Sat Dec 13 11:54:47 EST 2008 x86_64
