Need passcode for Migration Assistant - Solved
I have a customer with a new 2013 i5 MacMini running 10.8.3. She wants me to transfer her data from a Power Macintosh G5 2.0 DP running 10.5.8. I downloaded and installed the Migration Assistant Update for Mac OS X Leopard v1.0. When I put the G5 in target mode the hard drive icon shows up on the desktop of the Mini, but Migration Assistant will not mount the drive. When I put the Mini in Target mode, Migration Asst. asks for a numeric PASSCODE. Not a password. You would think this passcode would show up on the Target screen but does not. How do I find this Passcode?
Hook the machine up via Firewire cable. Start up both machines but do not use the Target Mode key. Start up migration asst. on both machines. Select "From a Mac on one and "To" a Mac on the other. A five digit Passcode will appear on the screens of both machines and they are now ready for data transfer.
Is this a good question?
