My grub broke, I don't know what caused it, it happened after I booted off a usb live image of a linux distro I was going to try to install, but I was only in the anaconda setup menu, the installation itself had not started yet. he installer froze out of the blue before I could start the installation, and I had to reboot the system. After I did somehow my grub installation on /dev/sdb broke and I can't boot into my existing OSes.
My setup is as follows: /dev/sdb1 (Boot), /dev/sdb3 (Arch Linux Root) /dev/sdb2 (Windows boot) /dev/sdb4 (Empty partition, reserved to be used as an LVM for other linux distros I intend to install).
The grub prefix should be (hd1,msdos1)/grub, but when I try to reinstall grub and fix it, it for some reason always wants to put (hd1,msdos3)/boot/grub as the prefix and root.
When I try to boot it gives me the typical error: file '/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found, and I'm a little bit confused since the grub-install command runs fine on arch reporting no errors, but still doesn't install grub correctly.
This is what I do to boot from grub rescue:
set prefix=(hd1,msdos1)/grub insmod normal normal
When I do that it loads correctly, now I only need a way to define this manually when grub is installed. Also, just to be clear, running grub-install again does not fix the problem, only repeats it. Grub seems to expect me to have it installed on /boot/grub on /dev/sdb3 when it is in fact installed on /grub on /dev/sdb1
