When you chroot to your /mnt/ folder you're still using the 8.x kernel
and thus the 8.x NIC drivers, with a 9.x userland.

This might be your problem.

What are you trying to achieve with this, a smooth 8.x -> 9.x transition ?

You may want to, instead, install your 9.0 on a different machine
(possibly a VM), then use dump on the filesystems to inject them
properly on your new disk on the original machine.

You should then be able to reboot on the new disk just fine.
