I don't follow this. You used cp /dev/sda /dev/sdb? Device to device? Or you specified directories to copy? I've had cp -a of directories not work, in particular it misses hidden files unless you explicitly copy them. I've had better luck with rsync. And I've had impressively good luck with btrfs send/receive, that's a cake walk, and fast.
