Well I am not sure but Ive tried:
1. dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc (running from the new disk)
2. grub-install /dev/sda
3. and now setting the boot flag

Is there some easy way of debugging the MBR?

Nevertheless the disk remains in state: "No bootable device..."
The strange part is that the installs above claim to go through without problem!

As said above, not reaching that far...
