Look at "/boot/grub/device.map". It sets up a correspondence between
grub's hdX and devices in "/dev/disk/by-id/..." so it doesn't depend
on the kernel's device names.
Run "grub-mkdevicemap" and "grub-install '(hdX)'" where "(hdX)"
corresponds to the disk in "/boot/grub/device.map" on which you want
to install grub.
Furthermore, it's fine to have a rant and blame this or that for your
problem but weren't you asked whether you wanted to chainload grub2
from grub1 when you went through the upgrade? Did you choose that
option? Did you test grub2 that way?
