From man pages:


installboot- install bootblocks in a disk partition


installgrub  install GRUB in a disk partition or a floppy

The installgrub command is an x86only program. GRUB stands for GRand Unified Bootloader.

installgrub installs GRUB stage 1 and stage 2 files on the boot area of a disk partition. If you specify the -m option, installgrub installs the stage 1 file on the master boot sector of the disk.
