No. The only bug is that the system installed on the SD card boots while it

Why shouldn't the system boot? It has the same kernel that is on the
hard disk

By chance. In a more general case, it would not boot.

If the distribution installed on the SD card had a different kernel, or located in a different path, or if the initramfs on the internal drive did not include generic drivers but only the ones needed to mount the root filesystem from the internal drive (MODULES=dep instead of MODULES=most in /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf), it would not boot.
