Slackware install on GPT HDD


Dear Slackers
My hand was itching to convert MBR to GPT. gdisk was saying some 33 blocks are overlapping, and that it has to be re-sized using other utilities. With system rescue CD, I moved my partitions, so that space was there between sdb1, sdb2. After doing this, slackware did not boot. 99 99 was displayed on monitor. Got fed up. Using gdisk, converted entire disk to GPT. re formatted. Made 3 partitions. Sdb1-swap, sdb2-ef02 for bios-gpt, sdb3 for /, install. Installed slackware14 64 bit. But, I did not install lilo, since I want to install grub2, which is not on install dvd.
I have stopped at this, and posting here. Pl. inform how and where on these three partitions, grub2 is to be installed
Tried to boot second hdd (sdb) from SystemRescue CD, but gave only 99 99 99

Desperately need advise. Hence, posting again here. (earlier posted under 'slackware installation' sub-forum) Pl. excuse
Any suggestion is gleefully accepted, for trying it out

Thanks, no UEFI, only BIOS. Fed up, installed lilo from install DVD. Will change over to grub2 later. Updating system now
