    Due to an error of mine pointed out in this thread, I would delete this thread if that was possible.

    I assume your "800 GB" used is a typo.

    The rest is most probably just down to differences in formatting and EFI partitions.
    Run the command "diskutil list" without quotation marks in Terminal and see what it says about your partitions.
