thanks for the detailed description!

as it's 23.45 here, i'll have to go to bed. i'll check it tomorrow.
i never had the idea to step thru grub-install. i guess you're right 
assuming i can find where the error occurs. i'll do it in parallel with 
grub-install from parted magic to be able see where the differences 
occur. i already have a second disk ready with /dev/sda{1,2,3} on a 
second system.

i'll report the results as soon as i have either a success or at least 
the details where grub-install fails.

thanks for your help!
