Hey there,


I got some problems when restoring my Time Machine backup to my new MacBook Pro.

The Backup is from an iMac (with 10.8.2) which is sold and I bought a MacBook Pro instead so I want to restore the backup on it.


The problem is when restoring it "stops" after aprox 6.5 hrs. I mean the computer just stops doing a thing. (I think so...)

It says just under a minute till it's complete but that's here for more than two hours...


this is how it looks like (in german)




I don't know If it's normal and I just have to wait a couple of hours or If it's unusual.


I really hope you can help me!

(and sorry for my rusty english)

    Nein, das ist nicht normal. Ich für meinen Teil bin schon mehrmals mithilfe des Migrationsassistenten und TimeMachine auf einen neuen Mac "umgezogen" und hatte dieses Problem noch nie. Wie auch immer, ich hoffe, dass es dir mittlerweile gelungen ist.


    Wenn nicht, melde dich nochmal.
