That's nonsense. 

Should you get any error when booting from a freshly-new created "/boot" 
partition, it must be different than the one you are getting right now. 
Are you saying you get the same "blackout" error? :-?

Moreover... if you format the /boot partition with ext2/ext3, you can 
even try GRUB legacy.

At least you can report the bug, so others avoid the same problem :-)
