Match system boot disc to Time Machine system before restore
Authored by: jsnipper on Apr 19, '10 10:37:03AM

Just wanted to add a note to this hint, you CAN restore a 10.5 Time Machine backup with a 10.6 DVD.

I had to do it this weekend on my Mac Pro when I couldn't boot the 10.5 DVD because the video card I'd added wasn't supported by the version of 10.5 that came with my Mac Pro.

I booted from the SL DVD, selected Time Machine restore and 1 hour later my machine was back and running 10.5.8
