We should change the way grub conf file is done for those cases.

Feedback from mondo's ML:

I have added at the end of post-init following code :
 mount /dev/sda2 /mnt
 chroot /mnt grub << END
 device (hd0) /dev/sda
 root (hd0,1)
 setup (hd0)
 cd /
 unount /dev/sda2
Now, it works.  After restoring, it boots.

The latest modifications made for 2.2.9 (up to rev [2185]) may now allow the call of the right scripts (with grub-MR) and have fixes for cciss support, so it could be worth to re-make tests with the beta of 2.2.9 to see if that solves the issue mentioned here.
