I basically have the same layout, except that /boot is on a raid1 (md0),
and that i'm running grml[0], which is a debian-derivate.
I'm using the debian-xen-kernel-package with its initrd, and in the
beginning my problem was, that the device-mapper didn't understand
/dev/system/main (in contrast to /dev/mapper/system-main).

The only similarity to your problem is the error message. In my case it
was "waiting for / to be ready" (not to be taken literally).

You should check your grub-entries for the xen kernel, and perhaps try
the debian-xen-kernel-package. it should be generic enough to fit your
needs (not productive needs for sure).

I also didn't succeed in creating initrd as good as the stock one. But I
must admit that I'm not really a pro in this matter...
