grub doesn't install when changing type of disk

Description

I had to change during restore the mountlist as the original system is using SATA disk (/dev/sda3 for instance for the root filesystem) to an IDE configuration (/dev/hda1). But I can not boot on this new virtual system. I do not have the grub menu, it is stuck before this. grub-install issues an error as with udev based systems, there is not the right device file created during restore (it wasn't part of the original backup). So it should be created on the fly.

The file /boot/grub.device.map has to be modified (as is /etc/fstab) grub-install has to be re-run after that. the mtab file has also to be updated.
