Do an upgrade, not an install. (Upgrade to the same version.) The
installer will fix Grub as part of the install.

Just to make sure you are doing what I think you are doing, let me
give a quick outline.

Boot off the install for CD for the version of Linux on the internal
hard drive.
Pick Rescue an installed system.
Pick language and keyboard.
Let it mount the file systems.
Networking is not needed.
chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub-install /dev/sda


  Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
