I’ve started on the task of building a NetRestore set and image for the Intel Macs. I used Disk Utility to create a new image of the boot drive. After the normal incredibly long process, it failed with an “error 49168”. So, I tried again. Same error.
I remembered that I had had this same issue the last time I built restore images on PPC Macs (when the new PowerBook G4s were released last fall) – I flailed about and eventually got it to work, but I never knew exactly what I had done that fixed it.
So, like last time, I Googled for “Disk Utility error 49168” and this time hit gold. In this thread, “ScottRussell2” found that it was NAV that was causing the error by having the audacity to scan the image while Disk Utility was creating it.
So, I killed NAV and attempted to create the image again. Success!
