9 Didn't you do this from working system on hda? In this case there
10 really could be troubles with special files etc. Imho live-cd better
11 for this purpose.
13 At any case imho it's better to split this task
15 0. Boot from live-cd.
16 1. Copy partitions from hda to sda (cp or rsync)
17 2. Edit fstab on sda.
18 3. Configure grub on HDA to see hda and sda systems,
19 4. Try to boot sda.
20 5. If all is good, configure grub on sda, and change BIOS boot order.
22 As Canek wrote rsync is great for this task, but beware - last '/' in
23 '/source/directory/' means!
