 tested, validated, can close.

 after dd restore the firmware settings must be changed to match the
 restored image, and there are tools that do this automatically.  a manual
 workaround is to boot the ubuntu rescue system and use these commands;

 mkdir /mnt/boot
 mkdir /mnt/boot/efi
 mount /dev/sda2 /mnt
 mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi
 mount -t sysfs sysfs /mnt/sys
 mount -t proc proc /mnt/proc
 mount -t devtmpfs devfs /mnt/dev
 mount -t devpts devpts /mnt/dev/pts
 chroot /mnt grub-install --bootloader-id ubuntu /dev/sda
 umount /mnt/dev/pts
 umount /mnt/dev
 umount /mnt/proc
 umount /mnt/sys
 umount /mnt/boot/efi
 umount /mnt
