Looks like the updated version of grub is breaking Beta 3. Please fix ASAP 
and upload with priority urgent.

I can reproduce with a Beta3 businesscard. There is _no_
/target/sbin/grub-install present which leads to a failure when 
grub-installer is running 'chroot /target /sbin/grub-install -h'.

I'm pretty disappointed that we are running into this despite all 
assurances that the new grub would not break Beta 3.
