Thanks Peter this looks good, as far as copying the system, but I want to
end up with a dual boot system so editing the /etc/fstab, to change the
first boot drive is probably not for me. After the copy I'm tempted to then
run update-grub, is this too easy? I could edit /etc/default/grub to change
boot order as required. I want this setup in place for more than just 0.28
to 0.29 Also for all future system and myth upgrades.
Its occurring to me that I will have to edit /etc/fstab to auto mount the
new partition. Am I missing anything else?

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.

Or edit /etc/default/grub to boot 3 instead of 0. Thanks.
