Thanks to all. I have followed Jonathan's method, but I did not remove
the old disk. However, I did increase the priority of the new disk as
the first one. However, I get the following:

The new disk is /dev/sda. It is rather strange that it says:

"Disk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table"

Any ideas?

Paul

Which one was your source drive?  The partition table should have been
copied over from it to the destination drive along with everything else.

Jonathan
Also I have been working with 2 hard drives and getting all versions known of Grub errors. I think you need to do what I did and Jonathan asked you to do. Remove the original hard drive. All you need to do is pull the plugs off that hard drive. I think that will fix your problem.
