You should have stopped right there. Exit the liveCD, disconnect the
existing drive, connected the copied drive, and boot. Just as you were
advised many threads ago. (Please keep to *one* thread).

It should alread have a swap partition (it's a clone remember). When you
expand the partion there is no need to set the boot flag, just expand
the partition.
