Ran into a new situation that is perplexing to me, re-imaging a 2009 iMac with a 10.12.6 base image and when it goes tries to install the OS after erasing the harddrive it states that there is not enough room, yet I have a 127 GB SSD installed?
Has anyone else ran into this before? or have suggestions?
Was the drive encrypted with FileVault? Are you sure the drive was wiped properly? We destroy all existing partitions and reformat the drive from scratch to prep it since a simple erase won't do the trick.
@anickless you didn't mention how you were creating your base image, but IIRC there was a bug a few years back where for some reason, if the drive you were creating the image on was a larger then the installed drive, this message popped up. I know i had this issue when I made my image on a 1TB drive, then tried to image 500GB Drives. I ended up creating like a 50 GB partition, made my image and things worked. The thread is around here somewhere
Any resolution to this issue? I have a few cart laptops that were showing as over 90% full. After clearing the older user accounts, emptying the trash and deleting the games the students downloaded into the shared folder(don't ask) we are still experiencing these drives saying the hard drive is 80% full. This is perplexing because we enrolled the laptops out of the box using DEP, so I don't feel that the image or external hard drive are an issue. Any advice will be appreciated!
