Does C. Imaging wipe the partitions when you do the erase drives? In the past (9.63 and lower) we've had to run a script that wipes the partitions and then recreates as one, then we run C. Imaging and it does it's voodoo and redoes the recovery partitions and stuff. If we didn't follow the partition wipe first, then for some reason the builds wouldn't work (wouldn't boot, not all apps would install, type things. Even when double checking to make sure erase drives was selected).
With 9.7, i was hoping this would all be simplified that we don't have to run the partition wipe first.
