I glad you found a workaround but I have a couple of questions to help
me better understand what the issue was.

This was your initial configuration:

How large is...
/dev/sda1:
/dev/md0p2:

When partitioning a large disk it is sometimes necessary to create a
separate /boot partition if the / partition extends beyond 1024
cylinders. I imagine the same restriction applies if you partition
/dev/md0.

Did you, by chance, try to create a separate partition (/dev/md0pX) for
/boot? I'm curious whether the issue was due to the size of your /
partition or if SLES simply cannot boot from a partitioned md0 device.
