Default 2.6.38 kernel not booting


I have problems with the 2.6.38 kernel which was installed with Ubuntu

Only the 2.6.35 from before the release upgrade to 11.04 works.

The problem with (two versions of) 2.6.38 is: After I choose it from the
grub menu, there is only a blue screen (not a bluescreen, but the same
blue). Dunno why, or where it comes from. I'd have thought the grub

config including all the nice graphic config would be installed
everytime I run update-grub.

2.6.35 has a graphical display asking me for the password.

My /boot/grub/grub.cfg is at http://paste.ubuntu.com/645514/.

My /etc/default/grub is at http://paste.ubuntu.com/645517/

Maybe the initrd of 2.6.38 is somehow broken - like, if it cannot handle
LVM or RAID or crypt, it of course won't work. But I have no idea how to
debug this.

Any hints?
