Try "grub-install /dev/sda". (without quotes.)

For the USB install, you need to use "grub-install /dev/sdc" instead
of "grub-install hd0" because you want to install grub to the USB
drive, not the internal drive.

I definitely should wait until after the second cup of coffee before
answering questions. I took too much for granted, and did not
explain in enough detail. I am sorry about that.
