I do use this for setting up a multi-boot system. Each partition is a 
complete copy so each partition has its own /etc/fstab which must be 
edited to use the correct root partition (i.e. itself). After making the 
copy and editing that fstab you should be able to boot into your 
original system and then run sudo update-grub.

If you want to switch your default boot partition you should reinstall 
grub into the new default partition.
