Follow-up Comment #1:

This bug is too incomprehensible and amount of work needed to read it is well
beyond what you can expect from a busy developper. Only thanks to the kind
help of Jordan Uggla I was able to understand this bug. All further reports of
this kind will be dismissed.
Some BIOSes aren't able to read past a certain limit (2TiB, 1TiB, 128 GiB, 32
GiB or 8.3GB). By default grub uses BIOS and so is subject to same
limitations. If you have ATA disks or SATA disks in legacy mode you can use
grub-install --disk-module=ata to workaround this. If you have any other type
of disk you'll have to wait for you subsystem to be implemented. If you're a
coder you can implement the driver yourself and send us a patch but first be
sure to discuss it on address@hidden to avoid duplication.
