I am migrating a bunch of iPhone libraries from one drive to another, repairing them along the way, and migrating them to the Photos app.

However, I cannot get the "Library First Aid" windows to open following the instructions provided by Apple to hold Option + Command while opening iPhoto:

  1. Quit iPhoto if it is open.
  2. Hold down the Command and Option keys on the keyboard.
  3. Open iPhoto.
  4. Keep the keys held down until you are prompted to rebuild the library.
  5. A dialog will appear with rebuild options. Select the options you want to use.

For me, the library opens, and I continue holding down the keys but the dialog never opens (minutes later even).

I am running iPhoto 9.6.1.
