    Hello.

    I just did a clean install of Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro and I'm at the part where it asks if I already own a Mac. I choose restore "From a Time Machine backup", I select the backup volume but then the system is asking me for the passoword to my Time Capsule. What? I don't remember giving it a password. I tried my system password from my Leopard installation along with a bunch of common passwords i've used and none of them work.

    Does anyone know what this is about?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Solved...

    So, the password the system was looking for was my Time Capsule password, not Time Machine. After trying numerous passwords I might have used for this I was able to gain access.
