Edit: I asked a couple of hasty questions: The references to "hd3" don't look right......shouldn't they be "hd0" with the partitions listed?

4 hard drives..
3 partitions on the install

Please excuse me while I sit in a corner wearing a dunce's cap, thus giving someone who knows what they're talking about a chance to respond....

Can you post the full output of
sudo fdisk -l please to show the 4 hard drives. A partial list is hard to interpret.

I unfortunately have to go but I think the problem may be that you have boot flags on both sda and sdd. That may be causing the confusion for grub. I check again later when I'm free and see if you have sorted things out.
