Thanks guys, everything worked perfectly !
- For the liveCD, i booted the second box with FreeNAS ( ) , which include rsync and ssh :-)

- Created the partition layout following the official doc
@Ruben: Thanks for your help btw for restoring the bootloader :-)
- Then just rsynced the "/" filesystem excluding the /dev  directory.
- Ajusted /etc/fstab
- Voilà !

Seems easier than a migration of GNU/Linux after all :)

Thanks again for your help !
