    Migration Assitant Help Needed
    My old G5 is acting up and will not boot up sometime. The hard drive is fine. Anyways I bought a new Mac, need to get all my applications and email over to the new mac. Will the migration assistant work if I place my old hard drive in one of the open bays in the new Mac?

    Using the Firewire will not work since it will not boot.

    Thanks
