I try'd in different order. Disconnect the IDE drive, change only the
bootorder etc. Nothing, everytime the same message. Grub can boot it,
its running into kernel and one line before init is running kernel
panics. Seems like the kernel could not find the root device, the swap
is afaik not necessary to boot. Tomorrow i try to clone it with acronis
and resize the partition to the new drive. We will see if this is possible.
