Full backup to disk image-would restore be bootable?

Instead of cloning to a separate partition I am thinking of backing up a full system to a diskimage. I realize that the image itself will not be bootable, but want to make sure that if I restore it to a volume that it will still boot.

Is there anything special that I need to do to the diskimage to ensure this?

I will nit be using the SD! "Disk Image.." dialog to create the target diskimage since it does not seem to support creating an encrypted diskimage.
So, I will create the diskimage in Disk Utility first. The diskimage creation dialog in Disk Utility gives several options for "Partition." The default is 'Single Partition-GIUD." Is this correct for out stated purpose?
