Your ubuntu system is looking for the disk(s) based on their hardware UUID -- a value that is not transportable.

You need to boot your Ubuntu system in single user mode & manually change the entries in /etc/fstab to either match the UUID of the "new" drive image, or reference the disk in another fashion (like the e2fs label).

I hope this explains a little and helps you on the path to a successful migration!
