This question already has an answer here:
I have a 146GB HDD in one of my servers that I want to replace with a 120GB SSD. Can I just clone the drive with
dd and have it boot just fine? Are there any repurcussions to cloning to a smaller drive? (The drive is nowhere near full so there shouldn't be much at the end of the disk). The server itself only had whatever partitions Proxmox sets up when it installs.
