Just opened up my brand new 21" imac, using time machine from my recent mbp backup to migrate. However, after it almost finishes, the imac is stuck on "Transferring network settings." Say's it takes one minute, and I left the house for 2 hours and came back and it's still on it. Any suggestions?

    I have a similar though not exactly the same problem. 1 hour ago my Migration Assistant said I had 22 minutes to go. 1/2 hour ago it said 18 minutes and now it still says 18 minutes. I can't tell if it is really stuck or just progressing very slowly.

    I looked at a couple other threads that were similar but didn't see anything illuminating. Is the prediction just really poor or could it really be stuck? How can one tell?
