I created an nbi dmg using AutoCasperNBI version 1.3.4, OS X Sierra and Casper 9.96, with the same settings that I have done with previous OS. What is happening, is that when at boot using a USB drive, it just never loads to the Desktop. But the actual NetBoot.dmg works fine via NetBoot.
Its just is I want to boot from USB that it never loads the desktop.
@bentoms yep! i created a nbi on ABNI 1.3.4 with both 10.12 and 10.11.6 and Imaging 9.96 and was able to use the restorable in both cases. I will say that I experienced some weird behavior on the 10.12 based one: install dmgs showing up as mounted on the desktop, extreme slowness in installing dmgs pre-boot. The 10.11.6 one works great!
We have tried a NetBoot server several years back and it was slow, so we creaated several image MBA units set to Target Disk mode and the ThunderBolt cable... things went fast. 1000+ devices done in Three different geological locations in Three days.
We had to build our package using AutoDMG though, nothing else seemed to work well enough for us.
Maybe I am way off base here.????
