MCZK, Welcome to the discussion area!
I guess that you were following the directions in Mac OS X 10.5 Help: Recovering your entire system.
That should work if you are using the retail Leopard OS 10.5 disc. Are you by chance using a disc that shipped with another Mac?
Duane, thank you. Yes, I can't find my OS 10.5 disk at the moment so was using one that came with my wife's Macbook. I assumed (wrongly) that would be ok. I will have to start pulling out all the office drawers.
When I find that, should the restore work with the Mac hooked up to the Time Capsule through USB?
My Macbook Pro's hard drive just died, and is being replaced (thank god for extended applecare!)
I have a full backup on my Time Capsule, and want to put it on to my Macbook when I get it back.
I am getting confused reading the Apple Support site's instructions.
Do I need to install my system from the install discs first? (as if it were a new Mac)
Can someone please just write me step-by-step instructions for dummies?
Once I have restored my system to my new hard drive, is there anything I should do in regards to my next Time Capsule back-up? (I read somewhere that it will take a while, as it basically starts to back up from the beginning again)
All help greatly appreciated!!
