My wife has her HP Desktop completely in a mess, through no fault of hers, and when I suggested she needs a new computer she unexpectedly suggested she takes my iMac and buy myself a new one, now there's an offer I can't refuse! So, if you have any suggestions for the change, we will be very grateful, I will take the HP Desktop back to factory settings and sell it. We have agreed to either revert my mac to factory settings, or just delete those files my wife doesn't want.

Nothing I have done has sorted the problems with the Desktop, the latest being not able to open migration assistant, with which we could retrieve some important files, because it will not let me change to accept user agreement! We look forward to hearing your tips etc:

It may be just me but I really do not understand what your problem exactly is.

Are you simply trying to copy data from the hard drive of the HP to your iMac and getting a permissions error message?

I really don't understand why you haven't followed the simple easy suggestions on your other two Threads instead of trying to use migration assistant a messed up Windows laptop to get files to an iMac.
