As the investigation of debian bugreport revealed this was inded the problem. Closing as invalid (wrong device choice may be a bug in Debian packaging though.

One possible reason is that the core installed on sda and sdb are different. You need to reinstall the both in the same time:
grub-install /dev/sda
grub-install /dev/sdb

Should have read 'update-grub2' and not 'update-grub2 /dev/sdb' of course.

here is my setup :

/dev/sda1 + /dev/sdb1 => /dev/md0 => /boot
/dev/sda2 + /dev/sdb2 => /dev/md1 swap
/dev/sda3 + /dev/sdb3 => /dev/md1 VG-00 with :


I use this command to update grub into the second disk:
update-grub2 /dev/sdb

When I boot with 2 disks it works fine but when I remove the second disk the boot failed.

So I was added the second disk and update grub2 with LANG env variable set to C and it works !!!

export LANG=C
update-grub2 /dev/sdb

Is this normal?
