Ah.  So it is just a rant.

What it appears to show is that grub can't find a partition to install on. 
Now that is certainly an error, but that doesn't mean it's a generic "can
not install Grub...".  You casually dismissed the most likely scenario.  If
you can fix it by creating /dev/i2o nodes, then it probably _is_ a matter
of not having i2o in the initrd image.
