Just throwing it out there, since I am sure you checked..

My system defines things with uuid instead of /dev - which makes
it so much harder to do what you are doing :)  I had a similar
situation, swapped disks, and it kept getting hanged - uuid's
were used on the boot list, fstab, and even in some swap switches
which took awhile to find.

  Nothing past the bios -- unless there's a CD in place.

  I believe that's what is needed.

  Just the partitions.
