Just upgraded our XenServer testmachine from 5.6 to 6.0, one of the vms' (ubuntu-server 10.04 LTS) will no longer boot. Error in XenCenter;

9/11/2011 3:48:23 PM Error: Starting VM 'TestDom-Ubuntu' - Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 873, in ? - data = fs.open_file(chosencfg["kernel"]).read() - IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Anyone come across the issue before?

edit; I've updated the boot related parameters in xen, still receiving the issue;
