selected the "Restore" tab, then selected the dmg image from the disk, selected where to restore and and Go... but I get "+Restore Failure, Could not find any scan information. The source image needs to be imagescanned before it can be restored+" ...and now I am stuck!
Under the Images menu item in Disk Utility you will find the function to *Scan Image for Restore…*. I seem to remember, however, that the disk image must be compressed disk image for it to be scanned. You may need to use the Disk Utility -> Image -> Convert… function to compress the disk first.Mac Mini G4 and Intel C2D; B&W G3

Additionally, if you can mount the image, you should be able to restore it if you have another boot volume.27" iMac i7 12 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.5), G4 450 MP GB 1.5 GB RAM w/(10.5.8/10.4.11/9.2.2)
