After installing 11.3 M4 build 515, I rebooted only to find that my MBR
containing grub2 had been altered, therefore I had to reinstall grub2 to the
MBR.
This happened twice, from both the GNOME x86_64 live-CD and the KDE x86_64
live-CD.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install
2.Select custom bootloader location - partition containing root ( and
/boot-single partition installation .)
3.Reboot
Actual Results:
MBR was altered.

Expected Results:
MBR should not be touched.
