So many threads started for the exact same issue....

Your first part is correct.  You can dd a smaller partition onto an
equal or larger one.

Your second part is incorrect.  It does not matter if there is a file
system or not (ANY file system) when copying from device/partition to
device/partition (i.e. if=/dev/???? and of=/dev/????).  dd OVERWRITES
EVERYTHING.  If the source had a file system, then the destination
will have that file system because ... dd copied EVERYTHING (even the
file system attributes).

   Great. Then why did it not work? It seems to be so close.
