The hard drive in my Macbook died. I replaced it with a 320gB drive.
We have a Time Capsule that Time Machine backs up to.
I booted from the Leopard install disk and restored from the time machine backup. The system said it restored successfully but then when it tries to restart and boot I get the gray screen and the spinning icon for a few seconds and then the system shuts off. It does this every time. The install disc is still in the drive so if it simply wasn't finding a startup directory there it should have booted from there.
I tried zapping pram and I used the Leopard install disc to make sure the HD was set to the Startup disc which it was.
Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Shawn

I have also run disk utility on the drive. Repair drive said the drive was OK. I repaired permissions which did some repairs to some printer libraries but that didn't make a difference in the system not booting.
