This is from the original posting:

   I went into chroot /target and installed aptitude, the kernel and
   grup-pc, but grub-install failed, because of no devices present.     

My guess is that in the chroot the mount command will *not* show
 sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
 proc on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
 udev on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,relatime,size=10240k,nr_inodes=62683,mode=755)
 devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)

My advices is to exit the chroot, mount at least /dev in /target/dev
and re-enter the /target chroot.

My websearch on 'mount -t /dev/ /target/dev' did bring me to
 https://www.reox.at/apu1c/ where you read
   mount -o bind /dev/ /target/dev
in context.

Feel free to rapport your milage.
