    If you have your iMac connected to the Internet with Ethernet, then your iMac won't ask you for a Wi-Fi network

    That is what the release notes say for fusion drives.  I think it is your recovery parition and not internet recovery when you use Command+R (the four options you mentioned come from the recovery partition).  The reason that it won't bring up a boot menu for external drives is the fusion drive uses a modified version of mountain lion (I think that was also stated in the notes).  Booting your system from a clone and accessing your fusion drive could screw it all up.

     

    What I'm curious about is this.....if you make a new clone (assuming CCC or SD work) can you get access to it via booting with just the option key.  The fusion drive is not a caching SSD system.  A clone must read both physical drives as a single volume and clone it as a single volume.  I would be afraid to try this myself until I heard from the CCC or SD programmers.

    You can try that, but I'm completely sure that it will show up if you created that clone with your new iMac

    I'm excited to hear how it goes.  Was the external drive usb3? FW800 with a thunderbolt adapter? or a true thunderbolt drive?

    All is right in the world   I just ordered a new 27" with fusion drive so threads like these catch my attention.  I usually have two clones (one not at home) and a TM backup (sometimes two TM backups with one to a NAS drive).
