Or, perhaps stage2 on the harddisk is still the old version?  Check
the files under /boot/grub. If you update stage2, remember the old
Grub will no longer work.

I think the Grub install command will only install stage1, not stage2
(not even stage1.5 if you use that).

I am not sure if it matters if the versions are different or not.
