I apologize if this question has been asked before but I have had problems using the "Search" function. I am waiting delivery of a new Seagate Momentus 7200.4 - 500 Gb - 7200rpm - 16 Mb - 2.5" - SATA (ST9500420AS) to install in my MBP replacing the factory fitted h/d. I have OS X 10.6.7 installed. Regular backups have been made using SuperDuper to an external h/d. I am confident I can fit the new drive but am absolutely clueless about the procedure for restoring my h/d to as it was from the backup. I have searched the web for hours until I am now completely confused and frustrated. Can some knowledgeable person give me step by step easy guidance as to what procedure I should follow. I am truly confused how I format the new drive when fitted. How can I go to Disk Utility to do it if there is no OS installed? Any help would be greatly appreciated and I apologize for my ignorance. Michael.
