Our corp is implementing Macs for the first time. We are using Casper to manage them. Unfortunately our Computing Security folks will not allow a Mac Server with NetBoot on our network, which puts us in a real jam. How do we boot up to get an image?
We are stuck using USB devices to boot from - a huge expense and a lot of trouble. I would like to be able to boot to the Lion recovery partition and use Terminal to execute the Casper Imaging app from a remote share. Is this possible? What are the terminal commands to mount a remote windows share from the (non-writable) Recovery Partition? If I can do that then we can at least get to our images without needing a 16GB USB stick loaded with the Mac OS.
It would be awesome to have a bootable ISO that would have a Mac runtime environment and network. Is there anything like this? No "WindowsPE" for Mac?
