I HAVE to use 10.6 since my print house hasn't tested their PDF software with quark and 10.7. So, based on what people have told me in the past and posts here, I should be able to restore my Mac mini from my MBP's Time Machine backup. Lion's restore drive tells me that I cant do that because it's a different machine, and that's very frustrating. 

 

Now this is the interesting thing:

Whenever I try to start up from ANY non-Lion mount, it freezes at startup. 10.5 disk, 10.6 flash drive, etc. How the heck am I supposed to get my TM image onto this new mini?
