23 boots into a panic. Here's the last 5 lines:

25 [28.856347] ReiserFS: sda3: found reiserfs format
26 "3.6" with standard journal
27 [31.560835] ReiserFS: sda3: warning: sh-2029: reiserfs
28 read_bitmaps: bitmap bitlock(#14057372) reading failed
29 [31.663418] UDF-fs: No partition found (1)
30 [31.663466] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to
31 mount root fs on unknown-block(8,3)
32 [31.663493]
33
34 After dd'ing I compared both drives w/fdisk and they
35 were identical except for the device names, of course.
36 I *did* update fstab and grub.conf and ran
37 grub-install w/o error. Don't know why it was looking
38 for a UDF fs.
39
40 one thing I noticed though, the SATA drive is about 3M
41 smaller than the ATA.
