Got my new IMAC and set up the Migration Assistance from my Old Macbook to the IMAC...  it finished migrating sometime in the middle of the night and the IMAC automatically shut itself off..


I try to log into my IMAC now and get the error You are unable to log into Account (xxxxxxx) at this time / account failed because an error occurred.


I don't run a Server configuration... and all the help in the community I can find is based on Client/Server


The MacBook is OS X (10.5.2) Leopard

The IMAC is OS X (10.7. ??)  Lion


This was out of the box migration, so have never had the IMAC up and running prior to this migration.


How do I get into my IMAC?  And what do I need to do to fix this error?


Thank You Very much...

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)
