Why are you doing a dd from on device to another? You could have just extended your LV slightly to make room for your metadata, then simply convert to a DRBD device in-place. And for your bootloader issue, for legacy Xen versions please see this thread: http://lists.linbit.com/pipermail/drbd-user/2008-September/010222.html This bootloader brain damage appears to be fixed in Xen 3.3 as found, for example, on SLES 11.
