If you point the two installers to two different primary partitions so they get separate /boot directories, you'll get to see their unique installer created grub.conf and you can see the differences.

No. You either need to point the installer to sda1 twice (once for each install), or you need to create three primary partitions: sda1 boot for install #1, sda2 will be LVM which both installs can use, and sda3 will be boot for install #2.
