Installing Sierra OS X after drive replacement

Text:

I need to use internet recovery to access time machine backup. After restoring , what is the next step to load Sierra OS X? I went thru process with old HD. Restored old drive  with time machine as test run. When I chose install OS X it said it would erase drive.

That really confused me. Any help would be appreciated.
