Installing to the MBR should fix your booting problems.

This brings to mind another question/issue:  I need to
educate myself on how MBRs work on EFI machines.
Questions such as:
When it says it's installing Grub to the MBR, is it
really installing it to an MBR, or is it installing it
to EFI's alternative to an MBR?

Any suggested reading?

As mentioned earlier, your machine is currently not using EFI.

In your case grub will be installed to the MBR of sda/sda1
