    Or is it exclusively a Mac to Mac migration tool?

    The Apple Migration Assistant is Mac only, however, there is a Vista tool that can be used for your bootcamp partition if you have one.

    Excellent. Do you know if the Vista migration tool would also move programs / apps or would these need t be reinstalled one by one?

    As usual the Windows method is a bit more cumbersome.

    Perhaps there is a simpler guide someone else can suggest.

    I tried Winclone to pull my bootcamp partition from my MBP to the mini but Windows would not boot and could not be repaired. The base hardware was too different.

    Cheers,
