The problem isn't with the filesystem duplication or the contents.

It's that the kernel doesn't recognize the partition table on boot and fails to continue to boot.
One of the weirdest problems I've ever come across.
It literally has to do with the *fake* disk geometry used to create the partition table.

I think this must be a kernel bug mixed with a very weird variation in the card hardware.
The card reads fine on a linux system.

I hope to be in the same position soon.  I mean, duplicating cards, not
lost, I`m there already.  How big are the partitions? I found it was
best to make the partitions not fill the entire card so there was some
leeway to allow for cards being slightly different sizes, but I`ve only
written to maybe 15 cards to date.

sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
