I know that, generally, a mirror copy of one bootable hard drive onto another will not necessarily boot.  Why specifically is this the case?
Thanks, John

It depends if the boot sector was copied also - this can usually be fixed by booting into an OS recovery console and issuing the command FIXMBR, followed by FIXBOOT.
