initrd command is implemented by module that is loaded on demand (most
commands in grub are implemented by additional modules to keep initial
image small). This means grub could not load module (file not found,
some error during module init execution).

What filesystem /boot/grub (or /boot/grub2 depending on your
distribution) is located on?
