If you look in /lib/modules/<kernel>/ you will find a collection of modules.
You have to copy those as well as the kernel and initrd
if you want the kernel to work on your new disk.

A modules is essentially a piece of kernel code
which has been hived off, and is only loaded if required.
This allows the kernel to remain reasonably small.
