You need either :
- kernel and (optionally) a ramdisk line, OR
- bootloader line
on domU's config file. Your cfg file has both, and (from the error log)
pygrub is active.

Depending on how you install your domU :
- you should have /boot/grub/menu.lst on domU's filesystem, in which
case you should use grub and comment out the kernel and ramdisk line, OR
- Copy SLES's kernel and initrd to dom0 (in your config that will be
/boot), and try comment out the bootloader line.
