Chapter 4. My Official Guide to Switching: The Hard Way

Chapter 4. My Official Guide to Switching: The Hard Way

I’d like to think you’re reading this section for entertainment, to see how much pain you’re saving yourself by following the directions in Chapter 3. My hope is that a quick scan of this chapter will convince you that buying and using Detto’s Move2Mac is a much better use of your time and money than doing the migration from Windows to the Mac all by yourself.

This is especially true since (in case you missed it earlier) as a purchaser of this book you are entitled to a nice $10 rebate on the Detto application (see the back of the book for details).

This section is based on a guide you’ll find on the Apple Web site (www.apple.com/switch/howto/), with comments arising from my own experience and covering things Apple is shy about telling you.

Stop

Me again, feeling the need to comment while doing the last editing. Just reading this chapter and creating the illustrations for it made me sort of ill. Yes, these instructions should work, Apple says they will work, and I have even tried most of them. But that doesn’t mean you should actually use these instructions if you can possibly avoid it.
