that adds credence to the fact although I planned to boot up the old F7
it didn't work.

    So now it will be a flurry of reboot to see if I can figure out what
happened. I wonder if the file system is ok on the New Hard Drive?

You can get this confusion when you use labels in your grub config
and/or fstab and the disks have more than one partition using the same
label.

This easily happens if you take a disk out of one system and add it to
another with the same distribution on it.

I think that is the problem. But if I remove the OLD HD and put in the NEW HD it will not boot :-(

So some small thing is wrong with the file system on the NEW HD. And that problem was caused by the dd copy.

   I just got 16 more updates :-)
