Hey all,

Had a new internal hardrive installed on my Imac so I need to do a complete restore. Used the Disk Utility and all seemed to work. BUT...

On restarting nothing has changed. My hard drive is still empty. Nothing in Itunes. No additional programs or old files. Naddah.

I tried a restart with Option held down, but there is nothing but my orig empty hard drive to select as my startup volume. Like nothing happened.

That said, 130G of info was transfurred from my external backup onto the hard drive that needed the restore.

What to do? I'm stuck.

Thanks.

I'm going by what I've heard, so don't quote me on this, but do give it a shot.

If you still have the old install CDs that came with your Mac, I heard you can boot from them and use the disk utility on the CD to restore files to your hard drive. Sometimes it works better.

Are you using Leopard?
