I just realized that I was not _that_ explicit as I should had been in 
my prior reply regarding this part of your steps.

Not only that CAT is not the best method for troubleshooting, but that 
"*mbr*.bin" is not supposed to be transferred (in any way, with any 
method) to sdb1 (emphasis in the partition number, "1" in this case). 
The *mbr*.bin files are supposed to be transferred to "sdb" (or "sda", 
or "sdc" or...).

As I mentioned in my first reply, mixing sdb with sdb1, syslinux.cfg 
with syslinux.cOnf and similar things are a symptom of either writing 
in a hurry, or not reading / following the adequate documentation.
