I wish to clone this disk, so I don't lose hours of setup/installs
on both OS's, and my work, in case of a crash. I did the following:

1) Installed Acronis 10 under Windows, and cloned the entire disk
   to a 120G USB disk.
2) Restored from that clone onto a new 80G disk of the same geometry,
   and replaced the existing disk with the newly cloned one.

Try to clone it with dd command from a knoppix live cd.

Something as:

dd if=/dev/hda of=/media/hdb1/giga80.img

dd if=/media/hdb1/giga80.img of=/dev/hda

This implies that in hda (primary master) you have the source disk and
in the second line in hda you have the destination disk.

hdb is the temporal disk which should be fat32 and mounted already,...

But Gnu is so good that you do not need any temporal disk for doing this.

If hda is source disk and hdb is destination disk you can do your cloning this way:

dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb

About your message... :) ... It seems that Acronis has done something bad on the cloning because grub was not able to mount the partition.
