I don't need debian_theme, guess it came from christmas addons. I don't care 
about the look of grub - I just want to bring up the system to start work.

To complete confusion, I guess, that debian_theme tries to get some files from 
/usr/share/... so if /usr is another drive (like in my case), it has to have a 
different root. 
Here again the (hdX, msdosY) will point to anything, but the right partition.

Currently I'm busy with backup/restore, so can't reboot system.
May be today evening, or tomorrow ...

kind regards
