    Unhappy Migration assistant troubles!
    Hi guys!

    I've just replaced my old windows XP PC with a mac mini and i love it.

    However, I'm having a problem with the migration assistant, the mac see's the PC and attempts to connect to it, saying i need to put in a pass code on the PC. The PC continually says "waiting for connection from a mac"

    I don't know if the problem is the mac or the PC!

    Both have the fire walls off and file sharing ON. The Mac is on a wireless connection but the PC is on a wired connection. does this make a difference?

    Someone please help me!!!

    Are you following these steps?

    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I followed it perfectly. It just stops at a certain part.
