SUSE not recognizing cloned hard drive

I had an old box with a 40G HD acting as a server and wanted to upgrade it to a 200G. I cloned the HD and everything looked like it worked. When it boot, though, it says

Could not find /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_IC35...
Want me to fall back to /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_IC35...? (Y/n)
I'm relatively new to Linux, so I have no idea what to do here. Is there any way I can fix this?

Each disk gets a unique ID. so since your system was setup to boot using disk-by-id you may need to fix the mappings for the new drive..

you may need to look at several files.. and make sure the disk id's match up to the appropriate partitions.
