Has tor created new keys?
If so, it's likely you failed to copy the key file(s) due to ownership or permission issues on the source or destination.

Does tor start as a client?
If so, it's likely that you failed to copy the torrc file.

Does tor fail to start?
If so, it helps to let us know the warning messages it prints out.
Perhaps the files were corrupted on the way, or something else happened.
