Hi all!
I tried to install grub2 on the image mounted via loop device (
And it  turned out to be impossible with standard grub-install utility.

The reason is

grub-probe error: cannot find a GRUB drive for /dev/loop2

This error occurs then grub tries to define drive by device name parsing. See 
file: biosdisk.c function: get_os_disk.
Only scsi and ide disks supported by this function.

My problem resolved by using low-level utilities grub-mkimage and grub-setup.
