-plug Thunderbolt-Enet adapter in to your MacbookPro
-plug enet cable in to TB-Enet adapter
-plug other end of enet cable into a enet hub or switch
-attach your PC via enet to the same hub or switch
on you MacbookPro
-turn off WiFi (probably don't have to do this; but, it makes the process a little simpler)
-select Thunderbolt-Enet as your network protocol (DHCP should work fine)
-open Utilities folder (command-shift-u)
-launch Migration Assistant
-select "transfer files from a PC"
-select your PC and follow the directions
