    I'm upgrading my MBP hard drive - I currently have it partitioned into two 120GB drives (Mac/Bootcamp). My new hard drive will be a bigger size - can I boot off the install CD and restore to a new sized partition? Or does the partition need to be the same size?

    The partition you're restoring to has to be at least the same size of your TM backup. If it's larger, it's fine.
