I think you have cloned your disk with an external Desktop-PC, right?
And the desktop PC has another hardware than your laptop!
I've hat a similar problem 3 weeks ago with one of my customers,
I cloned a disk of a desktop
PC (Suse 8.2) by hand with another desktop PC (Suse 10.2). I had the
a simlar error (I don't remember the exactly error text) and
Suse 8.2 didn't find the partitions! I use always ext3 as filesystem.
So I cloned again the disk in the Suse 8.2 machine and all went well,
An idea: take parted or acronis Disk Director, etc, boot your Laptop
with one of these tools (e.g. take knoppix on CD/DVD) and resize your
partitions a little bit! But leave your disk in your latop! parted
or acronis, .. should make correct boundaries while resizing.
Let me know if you have success.
