Something here doesn't look right. I assume that on 10.0 you have
your /boot contained on the root partition since you have grub-root as
(hd1,0) and system root as /dev/hdb1 which would be the same.

Now for 10.2, I'm seeing grub-root as (hd2,0) which would be hdc or sdc
unless you have things mapped differently and your system root is sda1

Didn't know you had three drives... ????????
