EFI install fails with complaint about more than one boot device
See attached screenshot. This was an ISO redirect erase install using the BIOS boot method on z35ref-a.sjlab1.ixsystems.com (IPMI is on https://10.212.3.4).
z35ref is sadly dead in the water until we fix this.
My comment: has EFI boot been tested on a mirrored install? I have no idea why it would give this error message, and I wouldn't expect it to be due to the mirroring, but who knows. Off to Kris.

Over to Sean for review. This partially reverts the --modules="<foo>" stuff previously added for the update situation. So far as I can tell, GRUB has different behavior when doing grub-install from the install media (with world mounted in /tmp/data) vs when run from the booted disks directly.

Yea, spent most of the morning on it. Installs to mirrored disks are flaky with the --modules='', but upgrades seem to use it fine. In case you've not looked at it too deeply, grub-install is a horrible mixup of shell and C, doing all this disk probing to determine what modules end up in the boot-block. Looks like it behaves different depending upon if it you are running from a system mounted on '/' vs a system chroot on /tmp/data.
Over to VB for merging. VB, let me know when the next INTERNAL -U2 is posted, I'll re-test it one more time just to be sure from there as well.
