Hi Lauri,

copying the stage1_5 file - in my case for reiserfs- generates the error 
16 "inconsistent filesystem structure" that has been handled in multiple 
recent contributions. The advice in this cases was to delete the stage1-5 
file and let grub link stage1 and 2 directly. ;-(

I start believing, that the boot loader is not only  "the most important 
software at all"  ( GRUB Manual ) but also pretty tricky if the normal 
procedure -starting from the hard disk- is leaved.
