However, this thread has been posted in the Raspberry Pi Desktop for PC and Mac sub-forum.
I suspect that the descriptions provided may not be directly applicable to that distribution?
The standard layout for the RPD for PC (at least, I suspect Mac is the same), is for a single partition. I doubt the SD Card Copier is set up to handle that case.
It would also have to handle the bootloader, with the stub being in the MBR (which must be bootable), and the rest being in the unused space between the MBR and the first partition.
Actually, that is not too hard to do. Just copy the block from sector 0 to the sector before the first partition to the new card/disk/stick, then edit the partition table to create the new / partition, format it and copy the data over. Fiddle around with UUIDs to make sure it is mounted at boot time and it's ready to go.
