    flashing Cyanogenmod 9 "Backup and Restore" don't appear in boot menu

    I'm trying to flash CyanongenMod 9 on my Incredible.

    I have ROM manager (Pro) installed.
    I have DL'd
    • update-cm-9.0.0-RC0a4-inc-UNOFFICIAL-signed.zip
    • gapps-ics-20120317-signed.zip
    Both zips are in the root directory of the SD card.

    The instructions available at Cyanogenmod 9 for Droid Incredible [Installation Guide] and elsewhere state that you should boot into recovery and do a backup and restore. When I boot into Recovery I have a choice of
      • Bootloader
      • Reboot
      • Reboot Bootloader
      • Powerdown
    Or I can select "Bootloader" and have the choices of
    • HBOOT (with submenu)
    • Fastboot
    • Recovery (this just takes me back to "Fastboot" menu above)
    • Clear Storage
    • Simlock
    • Factory Reset
    I get these menus regardless of whether I boot into Recovery manually (volume button/power) or whether I select "Install from SD Card" in Rom Manager.
    (No "backup and Restore") choice. (Rom manager asks me to press "OK" to boot into CWM Rocovery).

    I have done a backup with ROM manager and with BackupEverything so perhaps my backup is available.

    But when I try to Install the rom I end up at the boot screen with no option that seems to install the CYN-09.

    Clearly I'm missing something really obvious. Any clues?
