I managed to get the maker of the board to confirm the BIOS has a bug.
They are going to fix it.  It incorrectly returns error when you try to
do LBA access beyond 8GB, which makes grub fall back to CHS and report
'out of disk'.  They have been trying to add SD card support to the BIOS
and I think they broke this in the process.

So grub is fine as far as I can tell.
