Core storage imaging not working

Post by CAD » Fri Mar 23, 2018 11:39 am

We just upgraded our technician license so we could clone a macbook drive with core storage but it doesn't seem to be working at all. Trying to figure out what is going on I tested two drives. One with bootcamp and Windows and another with a fresh install of OSX Sierra.

I was able to make images of them both but when restoring:

1. The R-Drive boot media won't even let you select the OSX only image. (it grays it out)
2. It lets you select the OSX + Windows image but only Windows will boot after a "Successful" restore.

What am I missing?

Thanks,
Chris

I've passed the problem to our developers.

OK, thanks. If it helps the fresh install was standard with no encryption or password protection. I can provide screenshots or any additional info if needed.

Please, contact our techsupport with the following
* A link to this topic.
and system dump (About - > System dump ) with
* the disks from which the images were created;
* the disk to which the images were restored;
* the images connected as logical disks.

OK. Could you please provide a techsupport contact phone or email?

To make things really simple for testing purposes I have been trying to take an image of a fresh installed Sierra on a macbook and then restoring that image to the same computer. The external drive is an NTFS partition on a logical drive. It also contains Windows NTFS images and pre core storage images that work fine.
