btw. fyi - the problem with grubinst.exe and not being able to backup the boot sector is probably happening when one has too many harddrives. the grubinst seems to be able to only handle harddrives 0-9 and not 10. at least that was the problem for me - worked like a charm on my notebook and not on my desktop pc where the usb stick was hd10.
