I gather you repartitioned after installing to separate /home to its own
partition? If so, I would proceed cautiously something like this:
mount # to list present mount points
sudo umount /home # now you have access to your /home files, check!
sudo mkdir /newhome # because you can only have one /home at a time
sudo mount /dev/xxxx /newhome # using info from the mount command above
sudo cp -a /home/* /newhome # make sure directories match after copy!
sudo umount /newhome
sudo mount /dev/xxxx /home # now /home is where is you want it
Log in, make sure it is as expected.
Reboot, make sure it is as expected.
sudo rm -r /newhome # not needed anymore
