Is there any aditional steps on creating and deploying an image of an iMac OS 10.9 with fusion drive? need an extra pretask? postask?

I have no problems deploying the same image to a non-fusion drive. The image was created on a fusion drive machine, and created/uploaded a 10.9 boot enviroment with that machine. I missing something?

Any sugestion will be apriciated.

  • Have not had to deal with one yet, but looks like they are difficult to work with.

Not 100% sure, but I think you still have to use a 10.8 boot environment unless the 3.6 K2000 release changed that.

Past that, fusion drives should be supported. I believe that you would have to add an additional formatting task for the flash storage for the drive, but it's been a while since I've had to deal with it.

There was a KKE video on Mac imaging last August, so that might be helpful:


Worst case, submit a support ticket to KACE and they should be able to get it sorted out for you.

  • Thanks for the input, the KKE link didn't work. I'll keep researching and for sure contact support for this issue.

    If I find anything new, I'll make sure to post it.
    • Interesting, works for me. Go here and look for "Mac Imaging Tips & Tricks" on 8/20/2013 : http://www.kace.com/support/training/kke/archive
