    Automating dual-boot NetRestore

    I have been trying to get this to work now for a while but cannot get it right.

    I have set a default image in Netboot on the Xserve and have told the Netrestore image to be fully automated. I have placed the restore_ntfs.sh in the post action folder inside the resources folder inside the netrestore folder inside the image i am trying to deploy.

    What should happen is this...

    I boot from Netboot Image (this works).
    It formats and partitons the drive for bootcamp (this works).
    It then asks me to specify the image and partition. I have told it to use full automation and use the disk called "Tiger".

    I am not sure if even when i set this it is suppose to run the post actions but it don't do this either.

    I don't know if i have got the configurations right. Has anyone else managed to deploy both OS X and XP fully automated successfully?

    If so...How?

    Will have a read through. Thanks for the link. Must be something very wrong with my googling as I can never find any helpful links.
