I recently asked about copying a running system to a new drive.
As a postscript, I'm wondering if it would have been preferable
to run the machine under a Live OS, and simply copy the root partition
to the new drive?
Eg while running under the LiveOS,
# mkdir /mnt/old /mnt/new
# mount /dev/sda7 /mnt/old
# mount /dev/sdb6 /mnt/new
# cp -avx /mnt/old /mnt/new
# rsync -ax --progress /mnt/old /mnt/new
