This copied over some files, but not all. For example, in my usr/bin directory on /mnt/newsystem I'm missing vim while it does exist on /usr/bin. I'm also missing some /bin commands.

Is /usr/bin/vim a hardlink to another file, which _is_ copied?

To figure out this, do

ls -li /usr/bin/vim

note the inode number to the left, and do a:

find / -inum number -print

(insert the inode number instead of "number").
