you should disable core storage if backing up on the imac. If HFS+ it will
do the data only sections, otherwise it would backup the entire partition.

Core Storage is something apple added in one of their updates, you will need
to disable that to be successful with restoring.

HFS+ is support for data only but not for resizing of file access.

You need to disable core storage before the backup and do an entire drive
backup and entire drive restore.

Core storage is like dynamic drives in windows, or lvm in linux. They are
very OS specific. Provided everything is restore in the exact same location
with same guids and signatures and state information isn't stored in nvm
then it should work, but disabling core storage ensures it's dealing with
normal partitions in the gpt.

If you have mbr partitions for things like bootcamp you definitely want core
storage off and need to use the GPT Hidden from OS when restoring that
windows partition.

you can also always do a raw sector by backup of the hard drive which will
be quite large however.

If you've never booted, how do you know it boots.
