System not seeing backup as bootable

Is there something special I need to do?

I am trying SuperDuper to see how it does making a bootable backup. I run it and it says the copy completes fine, but when I either go to Startup Disk or run OpenFirmware at boot, OS X 10.4.3 is not seeing the backup partition as a valid bootable drive.

I am erasing the target partition before the copy. I am repairing permissions in SuperDuper before the copy.

Hm, that's strange. Is this an "old world" machine?

I honestly can't think of any reason why this wouldn't be bootable. Could you send a System Profiler report to me at the support address?
