I launched a Ubuntu 13.04 Canonical AMI ami-e995e380.

Using AWS console:

Created a snapshot of the 8GB volume.
Created a new volume from that snapshot as 112GB
Stopped the instance
Detached the 8GB volume
Attached the new 112GB volume.
Start the instance.

The instance tries to start, but goes back to stopped...it no longer starts.

Also, I tried doing this with the latest 12.04 EBS 64bit AMI and was 
able to do it and create an AMI
from the new instance. But the created AMI gets a kernel panic and will 
not launch.
