I just got a MBP (13' i5) and tried to migrate from my old MB via wifi (I don't have a firewire cable and don't want to spend £30 on one). It didn't work at all ('The other Mac is not responding...": could be because they go to sleep after a while and I should've changed the energy saver settings). Then I did a Time Machine backup on my external hd and migrated from that, via USB. The files and apps were transferred but my settings, iTunes library etc. weren't. So I rebooted my new MBP from the installation CD, wiped the HD clean, and reinstalled OSX. Meanwhile I also wiped my external HD and put an exact copy of my old MB's HD with Carbon Copy Cloner on it. Now I'm going to try and migrate to my new MBP from that carbon copy -- anything I should know about before taking the plunge with Migration Assistant? Should I tell it to do it from a backup or should I pretend that the cloned backup is another mac? Or should I connect the USB drive and do the migration from 'another volume on this Mac'? Thanks in advance.
