Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Fedora uses the partition/Filesystem label with Grub to dictate which partition is which FS (/,/boot, etc). Likely, these didn't transfer with your image move.
You'll notice that the device column in your fstab uses labels, rather than device names to specify what is what (except the swap partition). Booting with a live CD and changing those to the actual device names would probably have solved this issue for you
