There is more to a grub installation than just copying files.
OTOH nothing prevents you from installing grub on a given partition
even if it already installed somewhere else. Try
info grub installation 'Installing GRUB natively'
and read what will show up.
I decided that my lack of grub knowledge in the end made me re-install and
this time put grub for rawhide onto the rawhide partition and then chainload
from the pre-existing f8 partition by adding a couple of lines to the
The anaconda boot section seems to have changed from what I remember in the
past - there is no advanced box to check but you can alter the default from
putting grub on the mbr to putting it on the install partition....
I guess that there will have been a grub-install command to install grub
natively on the rawhide partition after booting to f8 after my first attempt,
and mounting the newly installed rawhide partition but I was unsure about
exactly what the commands were so have already initiated a new install
about an hour ago.
Hopefully the boot will succeed by chainloading from f8 by adding a few lines
since the rawhide install is going to sda8.....
