As I said in my earlier email, grub1 will not boot from an ext4 /boot.

grub2 is able to boot from an ext4 /boot but let's not go there.

If /boot were ext3, you would have to do mount your F12 partitions
with (for example) a "root" partition of "/mnt" and then run
"grub-install --root-directory /mnt /dev/sdb" (or "... (hd1)")


Are you booting at the moment from /dev/sda or from a CD/DVD?
