I'm a new user of SuperDuper and very thankful I purchased this app! Three days after purchasing this app and configuring it to perform nightly backups to my QNAP TS-509 NAS my MBP hard drive died. (Click Of Death!) After installing the new drive and restoring my SuperDuper sparse image to the new drive using Disk Utility, now when I boot I get the circle with the line through it. (Uggg) Weird thing is, Disk Utility sees the drive and restored partition. A Disk Check and Repair Permissions come back fine, I just can't boot to it. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

What can I do to repair this?
Would it matter that I had bootcamp loaded before the HDD crashed? I'm ok with losing that partition, no biggie, I just need my Mac partition restored.

Are you sure you properly partitioned the new drive as GUID (for Intel Macs) or APM (for Power PC)?
