Quick check: did you happen to use ext4 for /boot? AFAIK pygrub (on
Xen 3.4 anyway) does not support ext4. ext3 works just fine.

/root/iso is a strange place to put domU image :P

It shouldn't matter. Ubuntu's has pv_ops enabled kernel. Also, if it
were a problem with kernel, you'd get a different error message.

As a temporary work around, you can try copying domU's kernel and
initrd to dom0, and load it on domU Xen config file using "kernel",
"ramdisk", and "extra" directive.
