unused devices:

Important Install GRUB on the new drive or you won't be able to boot from it:

grub-install /dev/sda

This is critical because you won't be able to boot off the new drive if the other fails (you'll likely just see a flashing cursor after your system posts and will wonder what the issue is).

Change /dev/sda to whatever the new drive that you added is (and I do mean sda and not sda1).
