what you mean by grub menu destroyed
? That little menu.lst
file borked, or grub install to MBR not working?. From my past memory recall i remember that sabayon and mandriva both have a only restore grub MBR
option in install step. You can use it to insert at least a functional grub in to MBR, i hope ...

sorry, to little info here, have no idea what can be, try to be more explicit here and post some more info ... Try to update anaconda installer before any install step using that little Update Anaconda Installer
icon in the LiveDVD session. Can help sometimes, but not all the times.
But don't be afraid, you are not alone, and problems in install step can happen to anybody.
