    its not resore you need to do, you cant restore something the computer never had, you need to migrate
    Mac is like a car, keep clean and up to date and it will give you many hours of good driving

    When are you trying to restore? There is a part during the begging process with a new machine that will ask you if you want to transfer (or something similar) settings from a time machine backup. Is that where you are, or are you trying to do it a different way?
