KegHead; Hi !
Is grub installed to the hard drive ?
sudo debconf-show grub-pc
sudo grub-probe -t device /boot/grub

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo debconf-show grub-pc
grub2/linux_cmdline_default: quiet splash
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo grub-probe -t device /boot/grub
grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of /cow.

Your debconf-show output is nothing like my working system output. I do not see this line as referenced from my system:
* grub-pc/install_devices: /dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD5000ABYS-01TNA0_WD-WCAPW1463479Your grub-probe output also does not indicate grub installed anywhere (which begs the question, how in the world are you booting?).
sysop1@1204-a:~$ sudo grub-probe -t device /boot/grub
/dev/sdc1Do you need guidance to install grub onto the hard drive ?

That is one solution that is guaranteed to work !
Please mark this thread as solved (thread tools) so other's time is not consumed with a solved situation.
