If you’ve been waiting for the weekend to play with your brand new Mac M1, we can only advise you to start from scratch. Without being able to quantify them precisely, we have heard of a number of cases where the data transfer (notably via the restoration of a Time Machine backup) went wrong. At best, it did not complete, at worst it could go as far as reinstalling the operating system. And for some, what used to be a bad joke can even turn into a nightmare: the Mac fails to boot from boot volume or from recoveryOS.
In short, if your brand new Mac turns into a totally unusable object, you have one last resort before calling Apple support. On condition of having another Mac, it is possible to restore a Mac using Apple Configurator 2. On its website, Apple offers a complete file in French where it explains how to restore your Mac. Roughly speaking, it’s a bit like reinstalling an iPad from a Mac with iTunes a few years ago. You should have a USB-C cable (with adapter if necessary) to connect your two Macs. Last thing to know that Apple does not clearly say: for this to work, it seems better, if not essential, that both Macs
from the same version of macOS.
Bon, après une bonne soirée d'essai, j'ai restauré le Mac mini. Les protections d'Apple sont *super* reloues. En gros, si t'as pas le même système que la machine à restaurer (et le Mac mini M1 arrive en 11.0), ça marche pas... Genre une machine en 11.0.1, paf, erreur.— Pierre Dandumont (@DandumontP) November 20, 2020
