Hi Dave,

I will receive a new iMac in a couple of hours.
Both the "old one" and the "new one" are running MacOS 10.6.8 (I don't want Lion now because I have some apps needing Rosetta...).
I didn't use the migration assistant for a while, and I just wanted to be sure that I use it with a connected SD clone of the old system, it will bring back to the new machine both data, parameters, and all applications ?

Thanks in advance for your confirmation and best regards.

Michel

PS : by the way, from your experience, what will be the duration for the migration (the SD! clone is around 500 Go), the iMac is a core i3 machine (3Ghz) and I will connect it using FW800 ?

Edit : I should have read the FAQ before posting... sorry.

I am still interested if you can provide an estimation for the time required for the migration...

I honestly can't tell you how long the migration will take. Certainly won't be fast... 500GB takes a while to copy.

I can tell now, since it's done : 2 hours. I expected so much more...:) and as usual, everything works perfectly on the new machine.
