    Added a new HDD and broke Grub - Error 15

    [EDIT] Correction, Grub loads but gives me Error 15 [EDIT]

    I bought a 640GB HD and wanted to swap it with a 80GB Harddrive which has two partitions: /dev/sdb1 (boot) LogVol01
    /dev/sdb2 (LVM) LogVol00

    After taking the steps below, grub doesn't seem to load from the new harddrive:
    1- Used fdisk to create two partitions:
    1.5GB /dev/sda1 (ext3) Primary + Boot flag
    639GB /dev/sda2 (ext3) Primary

    2- Used dd to clone the /boot partition from the old HD to the new one:
    dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=/dev/sda1

    3- Moved the extends from /dev/sdb2 to /dev/sda2
    pvcreate /dev/sda2
    vgextend VolGroup00 /dev/sda2
    pvmove /dev/sdb2 /dev/sda2
    vgreduce VolGroup00 /dev/sda2

    4- Poweroff
    5- Remove the old 80GB HD
    6- Power-on and set my BIOS to boot from the new harddrive.

    Now the computer seems to boot from the new harddrive however, I only get black screen with a blinking dash.

    [EDIT] Correction, Grub loads but gives me Error 15 [EDIT]

    What did I miss here?

    Thank's for you help
