Re: "Invalid arch-independent ELF magic" in grub after SSD migration

At the very least, Ubuntu would cause writes to the SSD due to things

be surprised if there wasn't background file indexing and thumbnailing
tasks running too, writing who knows what to the filesystem.

I badly hope you are right, for two reasons:

1) the copy this time would work (sysrescuecd)
2) much more important, there would be yet another good reason to call Ubuntu names :)

cmp is running just now, it started a few minutes ago and it will take about 2 hours. No errors reported until now. I'll let you know the results.
