Grub looks ok... googling: grub OR linux "Destination address too large"

Please try recompiling or using an alternative kernel, it looks like there might be an issue with the kernel -post- grub.

Unless something has changed and Debian now uses grub2 instead of grub (legacy 0.9x) you're doing it wrong.

Grub legacy addresses devices by dropping the partition identifier entirely.  (hd0)  Partitions within the device start numbering at zero, thus sda1 is (hd0,0).
