I am trying to transfer my user settings and music/photo libraries to my new MBP from my old Alu PBG4 (running 10.4.11), however migration assistant was unsuccessful over the wireless network (which i have a feeling may be because of the old PBG4). The old PBG4 only shows options for using a firewire cable with migration assistant, however when using the MBP it responds to the authentication code sent out and starts the transfer, but gets hung up after about 5 min. I also have an external HD with a copy of my entire system, but can't figure out how to give the migration assistant access to it. Do I need to create a startup disk on my external HD for this? If so, how exactly do I go about doing that? Thanks for the help! I'd like to transfer only my itunes library w/ playlists, iphoto library w/ albums, and safari bookmarks...everything else can start fresh.
