I just purchased the new MacBook (very nice) but I haven't been able to transfer all the data from my old MacBook to a new one. Could someone please help me?
I opened migration assistant on both MacBooks, connected them with Ethernet cable, entered the passcode on the old one given by the new one, then a message appears "looking for other computer" and "preparing for information" which would go on forever and nothing else would happen.
Am I missing something?
QUOTE Thanks
