He said that he tried booting the old hard drive on the new system and
it did not work. I agree this is a bit strange if he just changed the
motherboard. Anyways, I was giving him a way to quickly get a backup.
After rereading his post I now see that he reinstalled on a new disk
so the procedure I gave starting with the mount should work.
