Default Clone dual boot HD (W7, SL) with Mac Disk Utility>Restore? - 08-31-2010, 10:45 AM

I want to backup/clone the hard drive of my DM 10v that has Windows 7 and Mac OS 10.6.1 on separate partitions before I try to change the sizes of the partitions with GPartEd. On my Macs I've successfully made bootable clones of their hard drives using Disk Utility>Restore. The procedure is elegantly simple. Can I use that method for this purpose? Will both Mac OS and Windows 7 still boot? Thanks.
