[Xen-users] Failure to boot Xen 4.1.2 kernel with Ubuntu 10.04.4

After successful creation of the Xen kernel and entry into grub, whenever I try and boot into the Xen kernel I receive the following error:


Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:

   - Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)

                - Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)

                - Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)

   - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)

ALERT! /dev/sda6 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!


Here is the entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst


title           Xen 4.1.2 / Ubuntu 10.04.4 kernel (root=sda6)

uuid            8edf0e1b-5f9c-4ca0-8f88-77d35af87093

#root           (hd0,1)

kernel          /xen-4.1.2.gz dom0_mem=4096M,max:4096M loglvl=all guest_loglvl=all

module          /vmlinuz- dummy=dummy root=/dev/sda6 ro console=tty0 nomodeset rootdelay=50

module          /initrd.img-


I have included the Results of the boot info script in the attached file, please let me know if you would prefer I placed the full text of that in an email.
