Hi Sir,

apologies for the confusion and thank you for the patience in helping.

My intention is to have my applications, data, password, user settings and emails from A to B. Most of my apps are already configured in its Tiger OS. My intent was as straight up as to pluck and play the Tiger into this Leopard-Only-Macbook B. The quickest, safest way that I know was to use migration wizard and transfer the data, key chain, address book, software preference etc over without much distruption.

The migration wizard could not detect A's Tiger partition, but only ...
OK, I think I catch your ball this time.

You misunderstood what Migration Wizard is designed for. It's for migrating from Winblows to Mac. It doesn't migrate Mac (Tiger) to Mac (Leopard) -- that's not a migration but an UPGRADE. Now you understand why the Migration Wizard only detected your Windows' partition? Heehee.

Anyhoo... to UPGRADE from Tiger to Leopard, you will restore from the external harddisk (which has your MacBook (a)'s setup & content) using SuperDuper to your MacBook (b). After that, your MacBook (b) will be exactly like your MacBook (a). Now (go buy Leopard DVD) insert it and run the installer. You will be given the option to UPGRADE to Leopard. There's NO WAY you can retain your old setup if you don't own a Leopard DVD.

Anyhoo hoo, we here don't recommend doing an OS upgrade. We always ask pple to do a "Clean Install" of Leopard. Upgrading almost always causes strange problems later on.

So... if you want to use Leopard, just copy your old data over from your external harddisk. Everybody I know do that.

Hi Sir,
correction: I meant Apple's Migration Assistant, which requires user to use firewire 400 cable to do it.

I've used it all along for my powermac->powerbook->macbook in Tiger..
Only this time round, Leopard does not read my Tiger partition.

I have a leopard DVD, sadly it was horridly scratched by the superdrive from the Macbook(a), it also kind of scratch my fren's disc (oops!). And using remote disc from the leopard won't work as mine is not a macbook Air.

I think you're right about manual copying. A good time to do data chores and clean up stuffs. huhu..

Help please:

As I will be taking over a older imac, i was told that i no need to reformat as my name can be set as the main adminstrator then i can hv all the rights and delete rest of the past accounts.

If I do that, all data in the past accounts will be deleted as well? Or it is better to reformat?

As it is rather a old imac, where can i check how much RAM can it support? because i feel like buying more RAM to upgrade this old imac.

Anyway i'm a new mac users by the standards of question i ask...

Safari->Preferences->Appearance->Standard font: Change from "Times 16" to "Arial 16"

After that, it's just like in Firefox 3.
