All my user data is on a ReadyNAS as I am doing everything in Win7 via Parallels, so there is no OSX data to move.
I had a go at this, but have managed to lock myself out of my account ( HaHa - need to crawl before walk etc ).
I guess there must have been some mismatch with the logins and the ReadyNAS user accounts. Duh.
I didn't change any of the default settings on the Advanced Options screen, so I'm trying to login as a member of "staff" with a 501 UUID but my ReadyNAS user settings don't correspond to these.
I think the easiest way forward now is to reinstall everything and start again. Not a problem except timewise.
This time I'll see if I can recreate an OSX user UUID etc that matches my existing ReadyNAS settings.
What fun to have tomorrow.
