So you didn't use RAID or LVM? In that case, it should work, or at
least it worked for me.
You can open a shell and look at /var/log/syslog to see why it failed.
If it's size related, do:
echo "COMPRESS=xz" > /target/etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/compress
and run the installer step to make it bootable again.
And BTW, I suggest you use ext4 rather than ext2.
