Default Restore CCC backup from bootable USB - 04-29-2011, 12:47 AM

Hi all,

I created a backup of my OSX install using CCC onto a USB. I can boot from the USB using the BootLoader. I installed Windows again to do some stuff as my other Windows laptop died. My other laptop is fixed now and I want to restore my mini 9 to whats on the USB.

I used GParted to delete the partitions. Booted via the USB and used Disk Utility to format the HDD as a single MAC partition. Then used CCC to copy the USB back to the HDD. When I tried to boot again (using the BootLoader) onto the HDD, I got as far as the apple logo and the and the spinning loading thing but it just kept spinning and didn't go any further.

What have I done wrong? Or is there another way of doing this?
