Hello,
I have two hard drives of identical make and model. I want to copy one to another. I have installed the first drive and run:
dd if=/dev/sdb of=myimage.iso

When I install 2nd drive, I run out of space while using:
dd if=myimage.iso of=/dev/sdb

output of detail of destination drive from "lshw -C disk":
*-disk
