update-grub only creates the configuration file, it doesn't write the
MBR or anything like that.

Ok, I forgot that. (BTW, I find this setup really strange, but if it
worked in the past with grub2 it should of course continue to work.)

Ok, that's great! I would say that makes you eligible to file a bug
report against d-i. :) Can you diff the grub.cfg against the one
generated by 6.0? How many disks did you have attached to the system?
Can you still make the system bootable again just by removing the extra
SATA controller? Does it suffice to remove the disks from that
controller? Is there anything else you can do with the hardware or the
BIOS to make it bootable again?

If nightclub doormen recognised me I would be more fulfilled.
