Hey there, We are attempting to use Migration Assistant to move data between an old Macbook Pro (Intel Core 2 Duo) to a new Macbook Pro Retina (Core i7) with absolutely zero luck. We have updated the OS's on both laptops to latest (10.9.2) We have done the disk permission repair We have ensured even the version of Migration Assistant is the same Not luck at all. We are attempting to do this via the network (Ethernet connection) and the two laptops see each other fine and get up to the step where you select what files you want to copy and then you are prompted to confirmed whether you want to overwrite the user account on the target (because they are the same) and then what happens is Migration Assisant crashes on the Source machine and you are returned to the log in window. I have had a quick look in the console and can see the crash but I am unable to work out what it all means - the crash reports/logs dont seem to mention anything in particular (or that I can userstand) Does anyone have any tips here on how we can get this to work over the network (I have read a few threads which say that ethernet is not possible, but surely in 2014 this is not true). Unfortunately the source laptop does not have a thunderbolt port so we can not use a thunderbolt cable and having to go and spend money on a thunderbolt to firewire adapter seems like a waste given that it should surely work over the local network. We have also tried direct connect via network cable (laptop to laptop not via the switch) this starts the copying then crashes We have also tried booting in to safe mode and then running the apps but the laptops wouldnt even find each other. In short - attempting to use Migration Assistant over the local network. Laptops see each other but source laptop crashes and we are returned to login screen. Any help appreciated.
