If you bought Lion, I'd probably try downloading that, create a boot disk and install that to see if It works - at least before buying Snow Leopard.

I don't think it will work, but it's cheaper than spending $20 for SL which you don't need/want and I don't think SL is going to allow you to restore from the TC either.

Just venturing a guess, I'd guess there is something that was corrupted during the TM backup causing the KP.

Another option since it sounds like you still have the original drive - attach it externally and clone it to the new internal drive with either SuperDuper! or CarbonCopyCloner. I use SD! and have been for several years - CCC currently has an advantage as I understand it because it will also clone the recovery partition.

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.
