After the latest grub updates I got this warning again, despite having 
installed grub to /dev/sda earlier.

grub-install: warning: File system `ext2' doesn't support embedding.
grub-install: warning: Embedding is not possible.  GRUB can only be installed 
in this setup by using blocklists.  However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and 
their use is discouraged..
Installation finished. No error reported.
