That's what I meant, I think.  Legacy mode is BIOS-compatible.  If 
you're booting in legacy mode, you can't access the UEFI variables. The 
old disk probably has GRUB installed on the first block.  It might be 
booting in legacy mode *because* the UEFI boot option's UUID doesn't 
match your partition.

You might want to disable legacy mode entirely.  Boot a rescue disk if 
needed, and fix the boot option from there.
