With a Time Machine and Clone backup on the same HDD, is the Clone bootable?

    I'd like to place a Time Machine and Clone backup on the same HDD, which I understand is possible. However, if I'd like the Clone backup to be bootable, does it need to reside in it's own partition or can I simply plop it onto the HDD alongside the Time Machine backup on the same partition. (I've never made an image/clone backup or a partition before.)

    Thank you.

    Yes, the clone is bootable, even if the TM backup resides right with it. That's how mine is set up, and it works great.
