    I agree with Bob. It was the "worst case scenario" option I suggested in post #10.

    I have done as instructed, but I cannot get in my new iMac, it will not accept my password even though the hint is correct. i don't get it, feeling very frustrated after paying a lot of money for something I cannot use!

    I did as directed Bob. Logged into my new mac but have got stuck on 'icloud security code. I clicked on 'forgot code?" and "Approve from other device", checked that my new mac is approved but the new mac seemed to have frozen, spinning ball for ages. Can I just turn off the power an start again?

    You would need to start up in Recovery, https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201314. When booted into Recovery, select Reinstall macOS. From there it will give you the option to restore from Time Machine backup, use that option.

    Obviously, you will need to have your Time Machine backup drive from your old iMac connected to your new iMac.

    +1!! I would agree with Bob.

    At least if the old Mac's user and data want's to be used properly and without adding extra work and fixes that just might not work properly.
