Default switch from LILO to grub failed

Title: Auriga s.p.a.

I have switched the boot manager from LILO to grub, I have purged the
lilo package and installed the grub package. Moreover I have run the

grub-install /dev/cciss/c0d0p1

I know I was wrong, and actually the machine no longer boots. When I
try to boot from the disk I see an error like this:

L 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99
99 ...

I have managed to boot from SysRescCd because the installation cd
doesn't recognize the disk, mounted the root partition in a directory
/mydir, it contains the boot directory too. Then I have run

grub-install --root-directory=/mydir /dev/cciss/c0d0

to install in the MBR. Seems that grub gets installed but the machine
still doesn't boot from disk, I get the same error as before. Any help
