PPC ->Intel Migration Not Necessarily Bad
In reply to Conchita, Aug 8, 2009

True, if you don't mind reinstalling a lot of stuff - migration from a PPC to Intel may cause problems, but not necessarily so.

I did this recently, and had two issues. The first, was replacing the PPC-only versions of apps with Intel or Universal ones. I had perhaps 3 apps to reinstall.

The second issue was my "Desktop & Screensaver" pref panel, which would hang when I tried to navigate between modules. Part of this was related to PPC screen savers - which I had to manually delete. But the pref panel still hung. One suggestion on the Apple Support forums was to download the last iLife Support update, which reinstalled the appropriate screensaver and desktop modules. This worked.

Other than that, zip - no other upgrade issues.

You can also selectively choose what to migrate if you are worried.
