After updating PPM, i removed grub and grub4dos just to ensure no incompatibilities, then installed grub2.
My USB stick is partitioned as follows:
/dev/sdb1 - NTFS - PUBLIC (frugal installs go here)
/dev/sdb2 - ext4 - BOOT - boot flag set (only grub2 installed here)
/dev/sdb3 - ext4 - DATA (will be changed to LUKS later)
Adapting instructions on the Ubuntu forums, I did the following:
mount --bind / /mnt/temp
mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt/temp/boot
for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt/temp$i; done #not sure if needed
ls /boot/grub/i386-pc # list modules to verify installation
At this point, update-grub was failing with error
/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of unionfs.
A look at update-grub revealed that it was merely pointing to grub-mkconfig
exec grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg "$@"
Searching grub-mkconfig for grub-probe was pretty straight-forward and led easily to the patch.
