migrating w/ assistant works
Authored by: jasont on Oct 04, '05 08:12:34AM

I migrated a user account and everything to an ibook w/ 10.4.2 (new w/o classic). After renaming the (from old computer) folders at the root level of the volume I launched classic. Not a problem the System Folder transferred fine. I clicked on spotlight and let it index and it completed. Yes, both of these machines were at the same OS revision and the names were identical because I used the migration assistant from tiger (as was the username and UID). I didn't have a problem as is documented in this tip, but if it occurs I would look to the computer name first and also rebuild the classic desktop.
