This is not coming from GRUB, so I’ll refer to Adrian on what you have selected 
“No" to.

With the partition table above, this does not look correct.  I’m assuming 
/dev/sda2 is your /boot partition. But GRUB is installed on the BIOS boot 
partition, /dev/sda1 in your system.  Try getting the ofpathname for /dev/sda1 
and booting from it instead within OBP.
