10.7: Migrating Time Machine data to Lion
Authored by: Genie arse on Nov 20, '11 01:41:30PM

This is expected behaviour. What you need to do is cool your boots a little bit when setting up your new mac and look at the options available; you have the option to migrate a time machine backup during the setup assistant. If you manage to have a user account on your machine before migrating then you have went too far.

Time Machine will migrate your data completely. This includes any user accounts that you had on that computer.

If you have already set up an account on your new mac then it will simply place the old user folder alongside your new one.

To be fair though... who can help but hammer through the setup assistant when you've got a new machine ^_^
