Procedure for making OSX Mavericks installer disk doesn't apparently work ("OSX Mavericks Missing Manual")

This question refers to "OSX Mavericks Missing Manual" : appendix A: The Homemade installer Disk (pp 792-794). The question is simply this:

**Why doesn't this procedure work?**

I followed the procedure for making an installer disk (on a flash drive) exactly. Everything seemed fine except that **Mac OSX will not use this flash drive as a startup disk. ** Moreover, AFAICS this procedure would not install a bootable system on the flash drive; it just copies a disk image onto the drive. Any help appreciated...
