    I have just brought the new MacBook Pro version 10.6.2 I was told if I got a firewire which I did and connect to my old G4 I would be able to transfer files, I did this, well I thought I did, when I connected back to my MacBook Pro I had lost all the programs that came with it and when I click on for instant Disk Utility application I get the following message:

    "You can't use this version of the application Disk Utility.app with this version of Mac OS X - You have Disk Utility.app 10.5.6"

    It seems that the MacBook Pro is running the same as the G4 mac, is there anyway I can get the original settings back?

    I would suggest using the disks that came with the MBP and restore OS/X from there and rerun the migration assistant. I don't exactly remember the options, but look for some option that tells migration assistant to igmore OS files.

    Haven't got any disks, just came in a box switched it on and went through instructions from there.

    I get into Migration Assistant asks for my password but wont do anything, think it is rejecting the password - Any ideas??

    If you bought it new, it comes with 2 disks, both which are in the disk box labeled 'Everything Else' in the long black case/sleeve.
