FC6 installation on Ext USB... Error 15

after insalling FC6 from a DVD on an external drive (USB)
I encountered the following problem.

Grub Loading Stage1.5.

grub Loading, please wait...
Error 15

freezing the boot...

after trying a
mkinitrd --preload=ehci-hcd --preload=usb-storage --preload=scsi_mod
--preload=sd_mod /boot/myinitrd.XX.YY.img

after editing via rescue /etc/grub.conf
and switching harddrives

disabling splashimage

commenting out hiddenmenu

_none_ of these solved anything...

Finally, I made thru linux rescue

grub-install --recheck /dev/sdb


switching hd1 with hd0

and everything started to work
