I just saw this bug,,
Perhaps if Grub can't support XFS, the default bootloader should
be upgraded to 'lilo' -- as it still seems to be maintained and still
supports high performance file systems like XFS.

Grub 1 does not support XFS and is not maintained. The Grub devs are
wontfixing all Grub 1 bugs. Grub 2 does support XFS and is maintained. The
current devel version of Ubuntu uses Grub 2 by default. The Fedora devs are
currently discussing whether it's time to switch to Grub 2 in its latest
devel version.

Lilo, even though "maintained", is an anachronism with flexibility vastly
inferior to Grub 1, and even more inferior to Grub 2.

Now you brought version-2 up...
afaik, grub2 isn't available as a prebuild package during instalation.
