Why are you trying to install grub's boot sector to a partition? It's
rarely makes sense to do so. Installing to the MBR being the obvious
choice if you want grub to be your primary bootloader, and using
multiboot to load grub's core.img from the filesystem (i.e. no boot
sector at all) if you want another bootloader to reside in the MBR.
What is your end goal?
