new ssd in dell optiplex 745, won't even load grub

Greetings all;

I've partitioned and formatted this 64GB SSD, copied everything from both 
working partitions of a 2TB drive to it, filling it up to a whopping 
18%, edited the SSD's version of /etc/fstab to use the proper blkid's to 
mount it including swap, and edited /boot/grub/device.map to point at 
the /dev/disk/by-id description/identifier of the drive.  And set the 
first partitions boot flag.

But pull the 2TB, and plug its cables into the SSD, and grub is not 

What did I miss?
Cheers, Gene Heskett
