I have two HW-wise identical laptops (HDD size and RAM size differ).

I'm trying to make two identical machines SW-wise. One is already running perfectly, the other has a base 20.04 install which boots just fine.
The machines have different UUIDs and users, and that's how it's supposed to be.

My idea was copying the / file system from the running machine to the new one, but excluding the following files:


Code:
/etc/default/grub
/etc/fstab
/etc/passwd
/etc/nsswitch.conf
This doesn't work, unfortunately. After doing the copy, login is no longer possible (password not accepted).

Two questions:
1: Is this idea insane?
2: If not, what else do I need to exclude from the copy to make it work?

Thank You.
