    I haven't run into this particular problem with Grub, but the usual
    story with boot loaders is that they need to pull a few blocks off disk
    by absolute block number. It is likely that in resizing your disk you
    moved some of these blocks. (Re-)run grub-install from rescue mode.
    Rescue mode should mount your root file system, and you can use chroot
    as suggested.

    Yes. Post your old and current fstab, old and new cat /proc/partitions
    or df -h or fdisk -l and your current grub.conf. Gotta start somewhere.

    This may be a symptom that Grub does not find
    its configuration file *from the boot partition*.

    The proper way to use Grun is to have the config
    file on the /boot partition, and the /etc entry
    symlinked to it.
