   Last I had heard, ext4 was supposed to be backwardly compatible with ext3, 
at least in _most_ respects (even if boot loader support is not one of them).  
If you've verified that booting to ext4 directly does not work, then 
obviously the next backup option is to use a /boot partition using another 
filesystem that grub2 does support, at least until grub2 has ext4 support.
   Do you perhaps have a situation where a separate partition for /boot is
