A potentially useful experiment is to try installing grub manually
on the partition, and see if it works, or if it doesn't, what errors
The installer may be suppressing error reports. I believe you can
view the installation log during the install, from an alt console, but
I'm not 100% sure it's possible, and I certainly don't remember how.
