Added a new HDD and broke Grub - Error 15

[EDIT] Correction, Grub loads but gives me Error 15 [EDIT]

I bought a 640GB HD and wanted to swap it with a 80GB Harddrive which has two partitions: /dev/sdb1 (boot) LogVol01
/dev/sdb2 (LVM) LogVol00

After taking the steps below, grub doesn't seem to load from the new harddrive:
1- Used fdisk to create two partitions:
1.5GB /dev/sda1 (ext3) Primary + Boot flag
639GB /dev/sda2 (ext3) Primary

2- Used dd to clone the /boot partition from the old HD to the new one:
dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=/dev/sda1

3- Moved the extends from /dev/sdb2 to /dev/sda2
pvcreate /dev/sda2
vgextend VolGroup00 /dev/sda2
pvmove /dev/sdb2 /dev/sda2
vgreduce VolGroup00 /dev/sda2

4- Poweroff
5- Remove the old 80GB HD
6- Power-on and set my BIOS to boot from the new harddrive.

Now the computer seems to boot from the new harddrive however, I only get black screen with a blinking dash.

[EDIT] Correction, Grub loads but gives me Error 15 [EDIT]

What did I miss here?

Thank's for you help
