This worked for me:
From the root of the LFS system
cp -av * [target]
Where the target is any area of storage such as another disk partition.
To make the new system bootable:
1. Edit /etc/fstab to indicate the new partition
2. Edit GRUB to point to the new installation
I have done this both as a partition to partition copy job and as a copy
to tarball and restore tarball to target partition and both have worked.
