I am having no problems at all here with Grub 2 under Debian. I don't remember
having difficulty switching from Grub legacy to Grub 2 either; the
instructions were easy to follow and it all just worked as designed.

So far, this has been my experience on two machines and a KVM virtualized
guest (the KVM guest was harder because I was experimenting with Btrfs as the
file system and Grub 2 didn't support it at that stage - I think this is fixed
