Excellent!  Thanks for the update.  Out of curiosity did you boot from
the rescue disk when you did your dd, or did you boot from the hard
drive you were cloning?
Hi Jacques, I used the drive I was cloning. That way I could keep using the Internet and write things.

 If you booted from the hard drive and then
cloned it while booted from it that would explain some of the quirky
issues you may have faced afterwards.
I do not think that is true. Most of the quirky issues were the result of my stupidity. And they were expected results if you understood.

 Because the clone would be of a
running system.  So booting from it would be comparable to booting
from a system that crashed (I'm making an educated guess at that one).
Not a good guess. To use DD you need a computer with dd and a fast cpu. I did top while dd was working and it was taking 70% of the cpu's time :-P
