    Will it automatically install all the Software Updates? I don't want the Graphics Update to install :hs:

    Time Machine skips many of the system files so I'm not sure if the updates will be included in the restoration.

    what about a format and a fresh install, then just use migration assistant to bring over your user profile from the Time Machine disk?
