I’ve an in depth buddy in a rural space whose typical obtain pace is 6 Mbps. They’re operating macOS Monterey. System restoration utilizing Time Machine from the inner restoration partition can be anticipated to be actually gradual.

I’ve two questions on operating Time Machine restore from a bootable USB installer.

  1. For those who click on on Restore Utilizing Time Machine Backup, it erases the vacation spot disk. Does it then use the MacOS installer saved on the USB drive to put in a brand new copy of MacOS, as an alternative of “dialing out” to Apple?

  2. If the USB installer is for 12.7.1 and the backup you wish to restore sooner or later is made utilizing 12.7.6, does the system supply to obtain the delta updater for 12.7.6 in order that the restore will work? I do know that Migration Assistant will not work till the Mac is up to date to the identical or newer model of Mac OS.
