Just to make sure:

Quoting from "hg help clone" [1]:
     For efficiency, hardlinks are used for cloning whenever the source
     and destination are on the same filesystem (note this applies only
     to the repository data, not to the checked out files).  Some
     filesystems, such as AFS, implement hardlinking incorrectly, but
     do not report errors.  In these cases, use the --pull option to
     avoid hardlinking.

Hardlinking [2] is also done on NTFS volumes by Mercurial on Windows.
