Thanks for your reply. Only I'm not sure what to do now... I've chrooted to /target and tried to install grub again, still the same error. The mtab and device.map look correct to me.
Could you give me another hint?

My first idea was a problem with my RAID controller (Adaptec 2020ZCR, running a 4 disc raid 5 array) but it even fails to install a bootloader to a floppy disc. So I think it's a general problem, instead of a hardware problem. It always returns the same error message: The file /boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly. The thing I found out is that the new / filesystem is still mounted under /target, but I guess this is normal while installing...? (never bothered to look, since it always works out fine).I've seen this error message a few times. grub must be installed from a chroot environment (which should be true in your case). grub must find a *correct* mtab to resolve hard disk partitions. (it's a bit tricky since the /proc/mounts trick appears not to work) A leftover device.map may confuse it as well. Steffen
