OK then.  Are you at the test phase?  That is doing section  8.4.3. 
Testing the Configuration.

If so, what seems to be happening is that grub-install is not creating 
the /boot/grub/core.img file properly.  grub-install is a script.  You 
might try hacking that script around line 312 to see what the value or 
$modules is for your installation.
