The term "module" in Linux normally means "kernel module".

If you are referring to my original posting,
I didn't say you needed to "update" your modules,
I simply said you need to copy /lib/modules/<version>/
from your old disk to your new one,
together with the appropriate vmlinuz and initrd,
ie the kernel and initrd are not sufficient alone.

Unless you compiled the kernel yourself,
you are almost certain to have all necessary disk-drive modules already,
in /lib/modules/<version>/kernel/ata/ .
