problems mirroring a disk

i'm trying to use rsync to mirror my server boot volume to another 
disk of the same size (120gb) on the same machine:

% sudo rsync -avxuH --delete --progress /./  /volumes/cbc.server2/

although all of the files from the source volume appear to copy to 
the destination, if i try to boot from the destination volume the 
system doesn't recognize it as a bootable disk.

anyone have any clues as to what i might be doing wrong?

thanx in advance
