Migrating to a new Mac - what do I need to know?
 
Sorry if this has been covered somewhere. I'm migrating from a computer running Tiger to a new one running Leopard. What would you recommend as the best strategy to migrate and be able to create a Sandbox partition on the new drive?

I've never used Migration Assistant before. Should I partition the new drive, reinstall Leopard, then use migration assistant with the target as the main partition of the new drive?

Any help appreciated.

That's what you'd do, yes.

Thanks.

I'm a little confused about what I've read elsewhere on Boot Camp though. If I have two partitions on my internal drive (Sandbox and Macintosh HD), can I then use Boot Camp to install Windows on the Macintosh HD partition?

Um, no. You'd need another partition for BootCamp.

But would Boot Camp Assistant be able to create a new partition for Windows in that case? I read that Boot Camp Assistant requires an internal drive that is not partitioned, so that's why I wasn't sure.

I don't know: it's not something I've tried.
