New disk crashes on boot

I bought a new hard drive for my laptop. I connected with a USB-SATA adaptor. I fdisked it, then
 mkfs.ext4 -cvj -t ext4
ed it,
 cp -urp / /mnt/hd/
ed it,
 lilo -C /mnt/hd/etc/lilo.conf -b /dev/sdb -m /mnt/hd/boot/map
ed it (It was /dev/sdb, mounted on /mnt/hd). When I boot from it (still attached externally) I get
Modules linked in:
CPU: 1 PIC: 1 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 4.20.10 #97
Hardware name: eMachines eMachines E725 /eMachines E725 , BIOS V3.04 12/16/2009
RIP: 0010: native_smp_send_reschedule+0x35/0x40
about a dozen lines of a trace,
RIP: 0010: panic+0x1F3/0x232
followed by more trace.

e2fsck finds the disk okay; diff finds everything the same.

Later: I installed the latest package kernel & modules (Slackware's 4.19.23) and get the same result. I also used
lilo -r /mnt/hd

It seems that the USB port is defective: when I remove my working drive, install it on the USB adaptor, I get the same error.
