I ran fsarchive on a bootable USB key using the following command:
fsarchiver savefs mykey.fsa /dev/sdb1
And restore that archive to another key by:
fsarchiver restfs mykey.fsa id=0,dest=/dev/sdb1
However, the copied key doesn't boot. Does fsarchiver support copying the boot sector, or perhaps archiving the entire drive? Or do I have to install grub manually on each copied key? Thanks.
Please ask questions here if you are not familiar with fsarchiver

The current stable version (fsarchiver-0.6.8) only save the filesystem on that partition. The next version (currently available as 0.7.0-beta) can also save and restore the partition table.. Anyway you will have to reinstall grub by hand but this may be implemented in the future.
