"Hard Disk Error"
    The stage2 or stage1.5 is being read from a hard disk, and the
    attempt to determine the size and geometry of the hard disk

I can only guess that the 1.0TB geometry (used by grub-install) isn't
the same as the 1.5TB geometry.

I'll check if there's a way to make grub-install use the 1.5TB disk
when locating /boot, otherwise the easiest way is to boot on a rescue
system as you suggested, chroot in the real system and re-run
grub-install from there.
