    Time Capsule question
    I am asking this question on behalf of a friend who has Time Capsule setup to auto backup his rig via Time Machine.
    He has just upgraded to Lion 10.7.3 from Snow Leopard and did not create a bootable image of the Lion installer, saying he can create a bootable backup from his TM backups via Time Capsule. Is he correct in his view?
    I am under the impression that backups from Time Machine are not bootable.
    Thanks in advance.

    You are correct, you're friend is wrong. Backups made with SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner are bootable but those made with TM are not.
