I am pretty sure that I was able to boot the same linux kernel as now and
windows on the HD, when using the grub instance which was on another SSD
(which is now retired).

I guess I can try putting it all back together again to collect values of
environment variables in a working setup - will this help?

correct, linux root file system is on the same SSD where grub is, Windows
is on the new SSD.

Right, I created a gpt partition on the SSD and then installed windows on
it, which carved a few small partitions out of it. But the linus root file
system is also on a disk with gpt.

I will try to restore the setup and copy the layout.

cmdpath is set to (hd0)
