Forgive my ignorance but I just wanted to confirm or dispatch the following: We deploy Mac OS X using a USB drive with Casper Imaging installed on it. My question is do I need to have separate USB drives running different Mac OS X versions to install on the Macs. Meaning if I have an older Mac that can't run 10.7.4 but can run 10.6.8 I would have to use a USB drive installed with 10.6.8 to deploy our 10.6.8 image using Casper imaging to this machine. Also on newer Macs that ship with 10.8 cannot be re-installed with a USB drive running 10.6.8 or 10.7.4 but must be booted with a USB drive that has 10.8 on it. Thanks in advance!
This is what has happened in my environment.
If I netboot to a 10.8 image but deploy a 10.6.8 build, the machine reboots after the build but I never see the login screen.
If I boot to a netboot 10.8 image and deploy a 10.8 build then its fine
If I netboot to a 10.6.8 netboot and try and deploy a 10.8 build then again I will never see the login window.
Only thing is to try different things to see what works for you. I don't know why I can't netboot one image and just deploy different builds but at least I know what I can and can't do.
