Ok, I follow you up to that point.

I haven't continued from that point since it says to select the disk where I want to restore my system.
Thought you just told me you did that above.

It doesn't appear to offer me an option of which disk to choose and the Time Machine backup has two drives on it,
Sorry, but I'm lost now. What do you mean your TM backup has two drives?

my main system drive and my second drive which is a data drive.
I would "assume" this is not the backup. Sounds like you're using two drives in your Mac and have it set up with your home folder on the 2nd drive? This is the drive that failed and you only need to restore your home folder, not the rest of the system? Your system drive is still functioning and bootable into OS X?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
