    Netboot

    Hi

    im in the process of configuring DeployStudio to image our macs, I have followed the instruction from the deployshare website and most things seems to work up to when i netboot (using "n" at startup) the blinking logo turns into a gray Apple logo with a spinning globe icon...so that must mean the booter file has been executed and i have a network connection ....then it tries to load and i get a box that pops up and states that you must restart your computer!.ehhh

    i have tried recreating the netboot set, the netboot set was created on the mini mac im trying to boot.

    i have a mac mini as a server x 10.6.4.

    this is the log from the server

    Be sure to build your netboot image with the computer that is the newest out of the bunch. This will make sure that all the needed drivers & compatibility is there to boot the computers.

    Is the computer you are getting this issue with a PowerMac or Intel?

    You are getting a kernel panic. Doing a search for kernel panic during netboot should help to bring up more answers.

    This is the first one I came across. It may help.

    Apple - Support - Discussions - Netboot clients boot into kernel panic ...

    Thanks for the replies, in the end the problem was the netboot folders, when i first installed the netboot service i manually created the folders as the service did not cseem to create the folders...so i dont think the perms set correctly on those folders.

    i uninstalled everything and started again, this time when i installed netboot the folders got created.

    i discovered the problem by looking at the kernal panic log file on the mac,some thing about "nfs server refused mount"

    a quick google of this pointed to the netboot folders
