I forget the exact wording, but the installer has an option for
where to install Grub. If you are using a separate /boot partition
for this install, tell it to install Grub there. If not, tell it to
install Grub on the / partition. (This is controlling where the
stage 1 loader is installed.)

If you did not install Grub, then you can run grub-install and
specify the "install_device" as the /boot or root partition. For
example:

grub-install /dev/sda5
