    Creating a new Netrestore image

    Okay maybe this has been answered, but I don't see it. I want to make an updated netrestore image of our student macs. I have found out the hard way in the past that you can't make images from computers that have been updated with combo updates. I used to download the newest image from the mac app store and the make an image of the computer, but now that Lion is no longer available from the app store I am stuck running an image from February. Then I have to run system updates on the computers. If you have any ideas or a better workflow, I would love to hear it. Thanks for all the help!

    Rather than netrestore why not try deploy studio it sooo much easier and works seamlessly

    Hi there, as noted above DeployStudio is the best free solution to imaging macs. I have not encountered any problems using masters created from machines with OS X Combo updates applied. I just built an image from the original 10.8.0 app from the app store using a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro, updated to 10.8.2 using the combo update and have now started deploying it out to iMacs and MacBook/Pro's ranging in vintage from 2009-2012 and it works without issue.
    They key is building the master image on the newest piece of hardware you have...

    +1 to deploy studio - not used it myself but have heard a lot of good things about it.

    Thanks everyone. I am sorry that I didn't respond sooner, but have been setting up DeployStudio and am loving it. Much more detailed and configurable that SIU. Thanks for all the help!
