Not being able to create NBI on NEW iMac 18,1 Hardware OS 10.12.5

Hello, I've just had brand new hardware arrive in iMac 18,1 and I'm trying to boot off the network and it gets the cross or boots straight to the OS macoS Sierra 10.12.5.

The old kit boots up to the network and into DS, no problem there! When creating the NBI on the client iMac it goes to the end then it crashes with the error:

DeployStudio Netboot set creation failed!
An error occurred while trying to create the DS Netboot set. Please check your system log file for more details. (not sure where this file is located)

Current setup DS Server is 1.7.4.3

Should this work with the current setup?

Thanks in advance

Re: Not being able to create NBI on NEW iMac 18,1 Hardware OS 10.12.5

Hi, i have managed to create an nbi by downloading the 1.7.8 server version and running the netboot setup(client Mac). However when I move it to the server ~library\Netboot\NetBootSP0 it goes in fine but under the server software. Netinstall menu under Images it has an explanation mark in a yellow triangle. Anyone help? Do I have to upgrade DS from 1.7.4 to a new version ?

Thanks Appreciate it.

Sorry if its a bit confusing. Create the Netboot on a macOS Sierra 10.12.5.

The DS server (1.7.4.3) is running on El Capitan 10.11

Create a netboot image from OS 10.12.6 or 10.13...anything newer than what came preinstalled on the iMac.

The Netboot image must have a unique index number.
Under Server.app (my version is 5.3.1) select each netboot image name and click the gear to "Edit Image Settings..."
The last item for each image settings window is the Image index number. Make a note of each, and correct any that are duplicated.
