Hey guys,

Just wondering if it is possible at all to be able to use migration assistant from a back up of my macbook, to my new hackintosh?

I'm a musician and I have a lot of apps and plug ins that are installed on my macbook that would take some serious time to re install on the fresh machine.

Thanks.

You can put them both on the same network (wifi or hardwire) or go and get an external and do a Time Machine backup. Then go into the software in your utilities folder on your hack, launch it, follow the instructions (it will tell you to do stuff on your original computer as well) and let it do its thing.
