Hi Andrea,

I can only really, really advice you to use the command line. 
TortoiseGit is IMHO a really cruel probram!

> I have an empty repository and my keys generated:

Yes, unfornately nobody finished that walthrough.

> But now I need some advice how to get the inital clone.
You don't need an empty repository (read: you must not have one). You 
have to start with cloning.

> I cant find anything that looks like "clone" command in Tortoise Git -
According to this video http://vimeo.com/9984118 it is directly in the 
context menu and called clone :)

> And I don't know the Remote URL - I want to add a patch to Version 4.7
Very nice! The URL is git://git.typo3.org/TYPO3v4/Core.git

If you have further trouble, don't hesitate to ask!
