Did a change, got a similar error:
error: failure reading sector 0x215f from 'hd0'.

and grub returned to the main menu. Selecting it once more results in:
error: no such device: d768c1f0-79c9-45c4-b604-8d0735a71242
error: no such partition.

I really wonder, if grub can read grub.cfg, why does it fail to get
the rest from the same device/same bus/etc.?!
