    Hi, I've got the following problem:
    I have a MBA, OS 10.7.3 with one Admin user.
    Then I copied another user with the migration assistant.
    Switching between users and everything else no problem.
    But: When I reboot, only the Adminuser shows up, not the newly migrated one.
    I already tried to make the new user an admin.
    I already deleted the com.apple.loginwindow.plist - still the same.
    Anybody an idea to get the second account to show up at startup?
    Harry

    Ok, I went to the Geniusbar:
    The problem was, the computer had Filevault activated when I migrated the new user on to it.
    So switching Filevault off and on again solved the problem.
    They said it's a feature not a bug: Only a user who agreed on Filevault could unlock the mac after startup.
