Well, I haven't tried the restore from my OS discs, but I did try starting up from my new FW drive and I haven't been able to get it to work. A friend who has done this numerous times with SD guided me through it, and he is stumped. Here's what I did:

1 ) partitioned the FW the way I wanted it
2) downloaded SD to my laptop
3) ran SD, selecting my old backup on USB disc as source and a partition on the FW drive as target. I directed SD to erase and then copy all files. My friend told me to make sure that "make drive bootable" was checked, but it was selected for me already
4) I quit SD, ejected the USB drive, went into system preferences and set the laptop to startup from the FW drive, then restarted. When the laptop started up, its HD icon was still in the upper right, with the FW drive icons below it, and the laptop HD drive was greyed out in the target list.
5) At my friend's suggestion, I hooked the USB backup again and ran SD, telling it to copy any new files over onto the FW drive. It did find some new files, and copied them, but the situation is still the same. I can't back up from the FW.

What am I doing wrong? Could it have something to do with the way I partitioned the FW drive?
