    Hello everyone,

    I am running a MBP with Leopard. My girlfriends Macbook (running
    Tiger) has been acting very strange. It repeatedly crashes, hangs on
    boot and has been running very slow. I have tried diagnosing the
    issue but I turn up empty handed. This computer was purchased through
    the internet roughly a year ago and because of this we do not have the
    install disks. I have prior experience migrating a Tiger OS from one
    Powerbook to another using Migration Assistant. I attempted to do the
    same with her Macbook but to no avail. In her Macbook I open
    Migration Assistant and advanced to the step where I am to boot up the
    "old mac" (my Macbook Pro). The Migration Assistant on her computer
    states that after I boot the MBP into Target disk mode that it is
    "locating the drives." This is where I get stuck. It never seems to
    locate the drive with OSX installed. Does anyone have any experience
    transferring a Leopard OS to a Tiger laptop? Any help would be much
    appreciated. Thank you in advance.
