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, 
no errors! 

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.
