That makes sense. What he is saying (for example) is that you should try:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb
dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdb1
(edit: note, this will copy the partition table as well as the mbr. Make sure that the disk you are copying to is at least as big as the one you are copying from, or you may need to fix the partition table).
