10.5: Use Time Machine to create a bootable backup
Authored by: nedaf7 on Jun 21, '08 12:26:12PM

In fact, this just happened to me when my MacBook's internal HD crashed. I simply replaced the drive, reinstalled Leopard, applied the system updates, and used Migration Assistant to move the data from my external Time Machine drive. I would like to point out that at first, I forgot that I had excluded the system files from my backup, so I tried to select my Time Machine backup when I installed Leopard. It actually let me do this, and then hung at the screen where it shows your backup recovery progress. I was pretty concerned until I realized what was going on.
