Not quite sure I understand what password is being asked for in para7 of the above migration action.
I am planning to migrate from a Windows XP sp3 to a Mac mini .
The Mac mini will be brand new - when I switch on will I be in administrator mode?
The planned set up is an ethernet cable between both computers to form a "mini network"
Assuming every application that isn't needed is "off" and I have the Migration Assistant opened in both computers which of the computers is "in charge"?
On my Windows PC I am logged in as administrator but I have no idea what the password is - how can I find out - assuming I need this?
Also the writer uses "password" and "passcode" are they the same thing?
These are probably daft questions to ask but I am determined to change to a Mac and would very much like to do it myself.
Any hints or useful forum(s) pointers would be most appreciated.
Assumes that you've started up your new Mac mini and set it up, including the admin username and password. That's what you use for migrating. The PC is just a dumb data source, although it requires that the Windows Migration Assistant was installed on your PC.
