Bootable Hard Drives

I'm having some difficulty with making a hard drive bootable. I'm
upgrading from a 40gb to an 80gb, and I have imaged one drive to the
other with dd. I've then proceeded to increase the size of the freebsd
partition and my /usr slice, then used growfs.
My question, however, is after my use of fdisk my hard drive is no
longer bootable. I've used the option -B for both fdisk and bsdlabel, is
there anything I'm missing?
The drive is not damaged, the growfs operation completed properly as
I've set my original drive as the booting drive in my BIOS, and had it
mount my new drive instead.
