comment Why did I have to edit /etc/lsb-release to get apt-get to work?
I tried that, it didn't work. I then did a dist upgrade (since quantal is out now) which changed the file to look like yours (only difference is DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.10") and apt-get works. Got me why.

comment Cloned Ubuntu to SSD, how to get grub recognize it?
I decided to manually edit the grub.cfg file, and manged to boot it using the grub on the original disk. The system was very messed up though (and the original system was somewhat messed up.) Graphics driver issues at shutdown, startup, dropping into a busybox initramfs shell during startup, etc. I eventually abandoned the idea as too much work. I could buy a new computer with the time I spent. That's been my whole experience with Ubuntu for the last year. If I didn't need it for work I would never use it again.

comment Cloned Ubuntu to SSD, how to get grub recognize it?
Yes, I can mount it and access it just fine, everything appears in order. I haven't added an entry to my current grub.cfg, I only edited the clone one. How can I (should I?) add an entry to my current config for the clone? I guess I can just copy it, but the big "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE" makes me pause.
