Missing startup drive

Dual 1 Ghz PowerPC G4, OS X 10.4.6, SuperDuper V2.1.1
I backed up my startup drive, Mac1, to an external firewire drive, using Extended (Journaled) as a format, I started up from the external drive and everything worked fine. I found it necessary to format my startup drive and restore from the external drive, I formated it with Mac OS Extended (Journaled) first and then began the restore from the external using "Backup - all files" everything seemed to go fine, but now when I go into System Preferences to make Mac 1 the startup drive again it is not listed, Mac OS 9.2.2, which I also had on Mac 1 shows up, but not OS X 10.4.6. I repaired the permissions and also ran Disk Warrior to no avail. I hope you can help. Thanks
Larry

So, you can boot from the backup -- and that works fine -- but once restored it doesn't? That's strange: are you sure you restored with "Backup - all files" and either "Erase, then copy" or "Smart Update", and that your drive was partitioned with APM (Apple Partition Map)?

Yes i did use Backup - all files, but I fomated with disk utility I haven't seen the "Erase, then copy" nor the "Smart Update" function do I need to use one of them?

Please check to see if the drive is partitioned with "APM": that's quite critical to proper booting...

It means "Apple Partition Map". You select the disk, then the Partition tab. Click Options, and make sure the middle option -- Apple Partition Map -- is selected. Then, partition it appropriately.
