    I just put a second HD in my G5 and want to transfer all the applications, data, etc to the new drive to use as my main one. Can I use Migration Assistant, or do I need to do something else? I know this is really basic and I feel kind of stupid for asking, but thanks in advance. :)

    Actually, I just tried Migration Assistant and it's working. Thanks though!

    Ah, you had Mac OS X installed on the new HDD and booted from it I guess? I didn't get that from your OP, thus my answer.

    Anyway, it works, thus you should use another method.

    Yeah, I was installing Leopard when I posted the thread. It'll be done in a little over an hour. :)
