(FIXED) Switch Grub to use conf files on different partition


I have two copies of Linux (MythBuntu) in a system.
One on /dev/sda1 and the other on /dev/sda2.
Grub is using the boot-files on /dev/sda2.
I want to switch Grub to use files on /dev/sda1.

I have tried using from the command line:
Quote:
grub
root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0,0)
quit
There were no errors, but nothing changed. I also tried:
Quote:
sudo grub-install /dev/sda1
But no change. I have read that Grub does not see the partitions.

Help please?
