I think I prefer the grub-install way because it's easier to remember what you
have to do and harder to mistype. Using dd works 100%, though, if done correctly.
Even if there is something wrong with grub-install or grub in the live disk, dd
is hardly affected. But, as I said, if you use two disks and pull the first out
you do not have to reinstall/restore the MBR anyway.
