by NAYURTT - 1/2/12 6:09 AM
Recently I tried to make clean lion install ,I had the copy in flash USB . I started through Recovery HD then did format on Macintosh HD driver which is has another partition for Timemachine backup .
Unfortunately,I realized that flash USB dosn't work so I restarted my computer with option key hold and found only one drive can I boot through named ( BACKUP ) which is the name for backup partition on internal driver .I go ahead and boot and its boot to recovery !!!! then I just tried to make restore from backup and my OS was restored successfully !!!
My question is :
1. how is the computer boot through backup partition while the recovery IMG was in other partition which was formated many time and the IMG also formated ?
2. What Kind of backup TimeMachine do ? is it only my files and data or including the LION OS ?
thnx, and sorry for my simple language
