A <- The disk that already has an installation but is smaller
B <- The disk that that you want to put the installation on

if you dd A onto B, B will get the partition structure from A and appear
smaller. However, you can edit the partition sizes using gparted like Dan
said, and make the partitions fill up the whole B disk.
