/toolchain/sbin/grub-install: info: drive = 0.
/toolchain/sbin/grub-install: info: the size of hostdisk//dev/rdisk2 is 204800.

No, it is not the same message. Now it correctly detects disk2, but it lacks MAC OS X specific code for BIOS device guessing.

grub-install expects in /boot/grub; so put it there (i.e. on filesystem on /dev/disk2s1).

Someone more familiar with OS X need to contribute device detection code for it.
