    Sounds to me like you're telling us about this situation in the "middle of the story".

    Please remember that we have no idea what is going on at your end...so you have to tell us the whole story (details)...so we can understand what's going on. Then we can answer effectively.

    Thanks,

    How did the information get from the Mini to the Imac? This one has me scratching my head.

    Agree w/ the others, i.e. little information provided, but do you have remote desktop software running on your iMac? Just a thought - Dave

    Sounds like Mini hdd cloned and then migrated to iMac.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    All by itself? Grin Is it iMagic??

    It can't do it by itself. It would have to be done by the user. I just do not understand what the OP did if the Mini is truly on his iMac.
