Question:  You have a system with everything on a HD /dev/sda, you use
/dev/sdb a live disk to boot and install debian on /dev/sdc including
the grub on /dev/sdc
You unplug the live disk and reboot, what will grub do by default, what
systems will it show, by default?
I did not specify whether there is grub installed on /dev/sda or not, so
there are two variations.  I suspect based on Bios settings the system
will either go to hd or to usb to boot, and that will be sda
