    when i worked in windows - any duplicate software clone flash drive bite to bite. But simple copying MacInstallFlashDriveForAir into file and restore it to another flash didn't make new flash bootable.
    Is it normaly ? I understand that i can make some handsworking and make it bootable but is it any software which can just copy one flash to another without mind turned on ? :)

    i think my poor english wil be understoodable for english speaking people :)

    Carbon Copy Cloner makes bootable backups.

    when i say for carbon copy - to copy Apple Flash to image, CC says me "The image wiil not be bootable"
    is it joke of CC ? :)

    when i tryed to restore image made by CC to new flash - it says

    The target volume will not be bootable because a required system file (Library) does not exist at the root of the source volume.
