Restore MBR Mint 19.1 to GPT disk in another computer

DrT,

This should be of interest to you when you transfer your Linux OS to a UEFI computer in 2050.

The Mint partition on a MBR disk was imaged
The image was restored to a GPT disk in a UEFI computer, using the method/Options discussed in a recent thread
grub.cfg was edited

Mint booted normally. All done in a few minutes.
