You're right.. grub-install is failing in the installer's chroot. Most 
likely the chroot commands need updating for newer grub versions. The 
rest of the install seems OK.

In the meantime: You will need to boot the installation from another 
grub and fix it manually. There is a "Grub rescue menu" entry on the 
actual live image which should be able to detect and boot it.

Then in a root terminal (asssuming you want it on mbr):

grub-install /dev/sda

Will post back later when it's fixed and a new iso done. Thanks to those 
who tested this (yes, Jessie is still "Debian Testing!)
