I want to use my Time Machine to migrate my information from my old iMac (OS 10.5.8) to my new iMac (OS 10.8.2) am I able to do this without transfering the old OS to the new iMac? I tried the Migration Assistant but there's too much information and it froze (it was going to take 3 days to complete).


iMac (27-inch, Late 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

Setup or Migration Assistant doesn't migrate the OS. It just transfers data and applications.

I believe that when you first turn on an iMac it will ask you if you want to transfer data (e.g. from Time Machine backup)
