You probably have BIOS-style  stage bootloader as it seeks at

But at the same time you try to use (maybe) another grub installation
which stores it's modules at /boot/grub/x86-64-etc

Would you please share ls (hd0,msdos5)/boot/grub/x86-64-etc/ ?

A guess all modules should be located there and probably you need to set
your "prefix" accordingly, but modules might be incompatible to the
loaded grub's first stage

If I'm not mistaken, you probably shouldn't desire that: msdos here
means "msdos partition table", suitable for BIOS or "legacy support"
boot mode. It is alternative to more recent "gpt", suitable for UEFI boot.
So I would recommend checking which mode is set in your BIOS setup: UEFI
or "legacy support", select a suitable bootable live-CD/FLASH media and
chroot you root filesystem to reinstall grub.
