Apple has just released an updated Migration Assistant tool for those on OS X Leopard that wish to move over to Lion. A Migration Assistant update has already been released for Snow Leopard, and Apple has now made it possible for Leopard users to easily update to the latest desktop OS.
“This update addresses an issue with the Migration Assistant application in Mac OS X Leopard that prevents transfer of your personal data, settings, and compatible applications from a Mac running Mac OS X Leopard to a new Mac running Mac OS X Lion.”
It’s important to note that Rosetta applications from the PowerPC days of old will not run in Lion. You can download Migration Assistant for Leopard from Apple’s support page. Leopard users can also check in Software Update.
Apple recently released Lion Recovery Disk Assistant, which allows users to create a recovery disk of OS X Lion on any USB hard drive.
