I was just scanning photos of the MBA, and realize it doesn't have a Firewire port. I have my bootable backup on a Firewire drive. So what's the solution here?

I see MBA has two USB 3 ports. Would I need to buy a USB 3 drive? Are they bootable?

A USB to Firewire adapter?

Thanks much!

Ah, you're right, denser than a doorknob I be. I neglected to flip the port images over to see the other side of the MBA. Duh...

Thanks again!

Don't know what you use now, but you can make a bootable disc by using SuperDuper or Carbon Copy backup software.
Yes, I use SuperDuper.

Another area where I'm dense though, is that I don't know if a USB drive can be made bootable. Can it?
