the easiest way for you to do this is to type the following if there exactly 
the same

dd if=/dev/<original> of=/dev/<mirror>

this needs to be done from another bootable system (ie knoppix or any distro)

or if your drives are not the same

mount the drives in two folders under mnt or anywhere else (using knoppix for 
example and type

cp -Rav /mnt/<original> /mnt/<mirror>
