    Hi. I am a newbie. Be gentle.

    I have a macbook and just replaced the hard drive. I want to back up with Time Machine and am following the instructions to a T. I've reached a roadblock. After following the directions from this thread:

    I got past my first roadblock and ran into another one. Here's where I stand:

    After choosing the particular backup I'd like to use, it searches and finds the hard drive (it calls it "untitled 1"). The page is entitled "Select a Destination". The hard drive icon is there. The "restore" button seems to be all set to go...but when I push it, nothing happens.

    What does this MEEEEAAAN??? I'm at a total loss. There is plenty of room on this hard drive. The initial install dvd is in the computer at present. Why won't the restore button do anything?? Please help. Thanks.

    I'm betting you formatted the SSD for the wrong file system.

    Sounds like a possibility. Any advice on how I could figure out if that's the problem and fix it?
