Same problem here. Brand new out of the box MacBook Pro. The geniuses at the genius bar had no helpful advise other than to blame it on unspecified "hardware problems" in the source machine. I pulled the drive from the source machine and tried to run it in an external enclosure but migration assistant didn't recognize it even though the drive mounted.
