An alternative to imaging is a tool like pax (or tar),
which can copy filesystems instead of slices and - that is the
important part - preserve all user and group permissions,
creation dates and links (your system won't do anything anymore
without these).
Thus you are independent of existing slice structures on your old
HD.

Please be careful and have a look and the manuals and google.
