  Thank you for your reply.  However, it didn't work for me.  With
  "/.autorelabel" and my new harddisk installed, the system took a
  very long time to "relabel" the filesystem at the booting phase
  (I guess it was my original root filesystem that it was relabeling),
  and continued with the booting afterwards.  But the booting was done
  (took a very long time), my root filesystem (which is the only
  filesystem on my original harddisk) was mounted as readonly.
  Certainly, a system with a readonly root filesystem doesn't do me any
  good.  More suggestions?
