The grub syntax is weird because it isn't restricted to Linux and
doesn't use the Linux conventions for drive/partition names.

You have your choice of changing the fstab/grub.conf names or
adding the expected labels to your cloned partitions with e2label.
The down side of using labels is that duplicates confuse the boot
process so if you have your cloned drive connected to the
source computer you won't be able to reboot until it is removed.
It also prevents you from moving drives around for data recovery
or similar reasons.
