I restarted the mac M1 while holding the power button down.
I entered other options
I tried restoring from a TM backup and was greeted with a dialog that said to reinstall macOS and then use the migration assistant.
I was at MacOs 11.2.3
I reinstalled macOS. The mac restarted and I was on MacOS 11.3.1
However, the Razer app and all the other poop was still there.
So I entered the migration wizard and it gives me a dialog box of “ select the information to transfer ”
He spins a wheel for about 2 hours to find out where and where.
And there is a little yellow triangle with the words “conflicts detected” at the bottom of the dialog box.
Why did I bother to reinstall the operating system if I didn’t get a blank copy?
The restoration lasts 3 hours … such a royal pain.
Will I ever go back to the previous state I was in yesterday?
In comparison, macrium on Windows is fast and painless.
