Any reason not to use raid as well? Something like this for
example works for me.

part raid.00 --size=256 --ondisk=sda --asprimary
part raid.01 --size=256 --ondisk=sdb --asprimary
raid /boot --fstype ext3 --level=RAID1 raid.00 raid.01

After the dd from sda1 to sdb1 the label in sdb1 is /boot and not /boot1 so
it fails, you can use tune2fs -L /boot1 /dev/sdb1 after the dd to restore
the label for example but it is a lot better IMHO to use software raid for
/boot.
