Sorry, didn't realize you wanted the simple result sans debug info; 'grub-
install /dev/hda' always reported its usual 'no errors detected; success'

If no one else had this problem with Grub2 and BIOS/GPT, then I am clearly 
doing something wrong, either building it, configuring it and/or using it. But 
I've done battle with it for three weeks and've gotten nowhere. Whereas in two 
evenings I've retired isolinux, gone back to legacy, applied Fedora's large 
patchset, updated ncurses to get libtinfo, built both, re-worked the media 
production, install and setup scripts, and have an installable, working system 
again with grub-legacy now booting the ISO and flash (MSDOS/FAT) drives and 
the runtime HD (GPT/REISERFS/EXT). Grub2 ought to be that easy to build, 
install and use.
