I ran 'update-grub2' (as root) (notice the '2' because this is what I

seems to work now.
What changed in grubs config? thats what we need to know, since
update-grub won't be touching boot.cfg.
Graziano, if you manage to confirm that the same steps work for you
(there is nothing new here really wrt the wiki's current content,
except maybe a few additional details), we could add these details on
the wiki page to help future generations of metad-installer-wannabes
like me... :-)
To whoever tries this next:
- Save /etc/grub/grub.d
- Save /etc/default/grub
- Save /boot/
* BEFORE* running update-grub.
The before and after is what tells us where to go next.
