Welcome to the Mac Forums.

In order to use your Time Machine backup drive for restoring to the new hard drive do this:

Mount the drive on your desktop. Right click on the drive and select "Get Info". At the bottom of the box that opens you'll see a small lock. Click on the lock and enter your admin password. The lock should open. Go to the Sharing and Permissions section (above the lock) and change the permissions to read and write for the System. Now try again to use TM to restore your data to the new drive.

Let us know if this works for you.
