After chrooting into your detected internal hard disk installation.
grub-install /dev/hda
might work.

I have not successfully booted from usb with Fedora as of yet.  
Expanding all of the initrd image, including sfdisk, recompressing the 
initrd image and editing grub gave me a similar error as you described. 
running the attached script got me to /dev/console before a kernel panic.

Good luck!


I'm moving onto trying reiser4 and set aside the usb bootable Linux 
installation for now
