a while back, i tried running 'dd' from a live cd to 'clone' 2
drives of same brand, model, firmware, whole 9 yards.

clone bombed every time.

i cured problem by building a bare system, no 'x', networking,
or anything else unneeded, on a 3rd hard drive, and only the
1 drive in fstab.

i am not sure what problem was, but i can only contribute it to
simple fact of 'live cd'.


good luck to you.
