OK, so here's what I did so far:

 

  • Bought a new Mac mini (i7)
  • Moved apps and data from my old Mac mini using the migration assistant

 

All went smooth up to here. Now what I want to do is do a fresh installation of Mountain Lion

after all. And this is where the problems start.

 

I still have the downloaded Mountain Lion app on my external hard drive. When I

double click on it it tells me that my Mac is not compatible with Mountain Lion.

OK, may be it's outdated (the installer). So I went over to the App Store trying

to download the installer again. No such luck: The App Store also tells me

that I cannot download this software because my computer is not compatible

with Mac OSX 10.8

 

Does anyone have an idea what might cause this sudden incompatibility?

 

Thanks,

Christian
