    Just a quick question. So I have lion installed on an external hard drive so that I can boot from it or restore my computers to lion faster than reinstalling it. I would like iLife to be on there when I do the restore from image. Is there anyway to install iLife onto this image without booting from it and installing it that way?

    The ideal disk image would be configured as you would like it when you restored it. You might as well load all the software and programs you need onto your machine and then restore a disk image of it to another drive with Carbon Copy Cloner. Simplicity is key.
