To be clear: this is not an error booting the ISO, but an error
booting the installed system?

Grub error #2: http://www.uruk.org/orig-grub/errors.html#stage1_5
"The selected disk doesn't exist"

I imagine this is ext4 related. You are using grub and not grub-gfx, correct?

Gerhard, any insight here? I, myself, haven't installed an ext4
system, so I am not sure about this.
