Hey everyone,


I'm trying to create a customized NetBoot image using OS X 10.7 Server.  I started with an OEM image, installed the required software, and created a .dmg using Disk Utility.  I moved that .dmg to the server and used System Image Utility to create a NetBoot image.  All seems to go well until the final stage, "Finishing Up"; System Imamge Utility appears do be doing something, but the NetBoot is never fully created.  I've let the process run overnight, but it still hasn't finished.  I also tried skipping Disk Utility altogether (just in case there was in an issue there) and creating a NetBoot image directly from the Hard Drive, but I've had the same results.

Is there something that I'm missing?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.



MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
