I have used the Disk Utility in OS X 10.4.5 to restore an image that I created with Carbon Copy Cloner. However, when I try to use the Disk Utility on the Restore CD, I run into an obstacle. I cannot click and the drag the target volume to the appropriate windows. Whenever I click and hold the mouse button down, it selects all of the volumes underneath of the volume that I am trying to drag.

In order to demonstrate the problem, I have put a small video clip on my Web site:

- Intel Mac Mini, Core Duo
- OS X 10.4.5 on System Restore discs
- Logitech cordless optical mouse (USB)
- Logitech cordless keyboard (USB)

I've occasionaly had similar problems like that, when I wanted to create a RAID using Disk Utility booted from DVD.

The only way I got the "drag and drop" to work properly again, was to restart the Mac...
Hope that'll work for you.
