1.7.5 Fails when creating USB Boot disk on 10.12.2 MacBook Touch Bar

Having issues creating a Boot disk with  DS 1.7.5 and MacBook Pro Touch Bar with 10.12.2 installed.
Fails every time. I have tried a couple of Usb flash drives. Also have no issue with these same drives and appling a DMG to them on the same system.

On this same system this worked fine with 10.12.1 installed. But after installing 10.12.2 i could not make boot disk, even after 100% wiping the drive, booting off an external boot disk and installing 10.12.2.
I can confirm 10.12.2 recovery partition is there and working

Interestingly enough, I received a touchbar MacBook Pro a couple of days ago and found that after applying the 10.12.2 combo update it did not have a matching 10.12.2 recovery partition.

I downloaded the full Sierra installer (now 10.12.2) from the app store, ran it on the same machine, and all is good now. Weird. :/

When you run the combo update, only the OS is updated.  You need to boot to recovery and run a reinstall to update the recovery partition as well.  Otherwise, you'll get the mismatch warning.

I got this working. I just let DS create the USB flash drive. Took about 3 hours. Not sure why so long but it worked.

An easier way to update the recovery partition is using https://github.com/MagerValp/Create-Recovery-Partition-Installer/releases
Works perfectly!
