After I updated my system with apt-get upgrade, I rebooted and landed at the grub> promt.

I wasn't able to set any root and booted always to kernel panic. I then started a live CD and used https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair. After I used this tool I now get:

error: out of disk    
error: could't read file.
press any key to continue...

Here is what boot-repair produced: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1691134/

Can somebody guide me to the right setup for my problem or how I reset the grub settings to the proper ones?

I solved it by creating a boot partition with gparted at the very beginning off the raid hdd (first 1 GB). I installed grub there and everything was ok then. –  Andreas Mar 5 '13 at 11:22

I would boot to the USB installer , launch a terminal and run sudo grub-install ( followed by your hdd mount point ) then sudo grub-update
