Googled for grub error 24 gave numerous hits:

Have you tried to run sudo update-grub from the kernel that wont boot. Maybe you can run the recovery kernel and access the cli as root then run the command listed above.

I think you are trying to do too many things at once. Should have resolved the first problem before upgrading and changing grub, IMHO.

Try booting to recovery mode as mentioned above for the 2.6.31-14-generic kernel and run update-grub as root. Then reboot. May not fix the issue but wont hurt.

It would certainly be easier to correct if you hadn't made so many changes. At this point you may have to just reinstall with the live or alt CD.

Snipped large data overload here. I did scan through it but saw nothing that caught my eye.
