I did it a month ago.
I used copy/paste of partition with Gparted.

I pluged new disk in a external dock.
I run Gparted, which detected both disks (in fact, I merged two old disks in a new one).
Then I copy each partition of old disk and paste to new disk.
( I simply had some issues as I had more than 3 primary partitions, which is not your case).
I made an Ubuntu CD.
Than I replaced old internal disks by new one and reinstalled Grub2 with CD.
You need to reinstall Grub2 as new disk installed as sdb will become sda, and MBR (first sector of disk) use such numbering.

Can you help with this problem?
