Fedora puts grub in /usr/sbin/grub so grub-install cant find it

Does the sata drive show up on boot (before grub)

I had a problem with my sata, which was attached to a pci card

Occasionally the bios would find it before grub, but mostoften
wouldnt, so the install went fine, but booting was problematic

My solution was to downclock the cpu. Apparently cpu was going to fast
for sata to be recognised. Hope this helps
