alternate installer: grub2 can't be installed on a partition

Bug Description

Trying to install grub on a partition in oneiric beta1 installer fails.

Install log windows shows this error:
/usr/bin/grub-setup: info: opening the core image '/boot/grub/core.img'

And in the installer there is a error message which is fatal and causes bootloader installation step to fail.

This can be worked around by changing to installer shell by ctrl+alt+F2 then
# chroot /target /bin/bash
# grub-install /dev/sdxy
# update-grub

and then switching back to the installer by ctrl+alt+f1 and selecting "continue without bootloader"
