Yes, I did a netboot from an USB stick. I intended to follow the Debian 
GNU/Linux Installation Guide to install from USB stick:

"For the first installation method you'll need to download an installer image 
from the netboot directory (at the location mentioned in Section 4.2.1, “Where 
to Find Installation Images”) and use the “flexible way” explained below to 
copy the files to the USB stick."


The only thing I had to do to fix the problem, was booting once with the usb 
stick with the new bootloader and then run grub-install as root. Starting from 
then I could boot without the usb stick.
