Just trying to be succinct, but perhaps I should have spelled it out

There is only one partition, and I moved it using gparted, ie. dd.
I other words, there should not be any changes except what I had to do
to get it to boot. 

Snip from my post on ubuntuforums
"Old partition boots fine on new pc. What should have broken?"

Synopsis of steps:
Boot old laptop from cd. Connect new laptop disk using usb. 
Partition in gparted, make new swap, then copy paste Karmic partition in
free space.
Fix grub using chroot, grub-install, update-grub
Put disk back. Boot. :)
Freeze up swapping a few times. Fix uuid for swap in fstab.
Fix swap uuid in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume just in case.

Does this shed any new light on the issue?  *Hopefull* :)
