LOL - let me clarify, that this setup has not been created by intention. 
I tried to change root to another SSD, but I never installed grub to the other 
6 drives. 

It happened by accident, when grub-install /dev/sda was executed, but /dev/sda 
is not the expected drive, but mapped by who ever to another drive, that 
should be /dev/sdg or so.

How should I do that?

If stable repos are updated to 6.0.1 then installing a fresh system using 6.0 
netinst CD will end up by a fresh installed 6.0.1 system.

I don't have the possibility to diff agains 6.0 - the 6.0 systems I continue to 
have, are quite different HW and for so not comparable.

So since update to 6.0.1 every installation on my desktop system results in an 
unusable/broken system.

I'll check that, on my next sparetime timeslot.
