Tiger Images Not Recognized in Leopard Server

I have a Tiger image that I would like to make a NetInstall image for my Leopard Server.  However, when I open up System Image Utility, it doesn't recognize my Tiger image under Sources, but it will recognize my Leopard images.  Apple claims that you can host Tiger and Leopard images off 10.5.x Server.  Any way for my Tiger images to be recognized by System Image Utility in Leopard Server?

Open up your disk utility.

Under the images menu, click on scan image for restore.

Select your Tiger image.

When the process is complete, try the system image utility again.

Nothing appears under Sources.  Only Workflows.

This has to be done via your disk utility FIRST!

Alternatively, mount your disk image then select it as a source.

That's what I did.  I scanned the image via Disk Utility before I reported BACK to you, then mounted it and opened up System Image Utility, and "Macintosh HD" only appears under Workflows, NOT Sources.

Then there is a problem with your Source.  It may not be recognized as a "blessed" system.  Try this to verify:

  • Mount the Tiger Image
  • Go into your System Preferences
  • Select startup disk.
  • Can you actually select the Tiger image at the boot disk?
  • If you cannot then the problem is your image.

It seems to me that there is no problem with the Tiger image as it might be something with the Leopard Server tools not being able to recognize any Tiger images or below just because it's Leopard.  I mount a Leopard image and the S.I.U. recognizes it, but not the Tiger image.

Have you tried this using a Leopard DVD as the source?  I have done both DVD and dmg image successfully.

Leopard is fine.  It's Tiger that's the problem.

Sorry that is what I meant Tiger, not Leopard.  Also That is what  I do, I use my Mac pro to create images.

So, after putting in the Tiger install disc into my PPC server and when I started up System Image Utility, it states, "No valid image source found."

I have since created an image from the Install discs on a MacBook running Tiger client with the Server Tools and copied it to my PPC Leopard server.  It is recognized by Startup Disk, but when I go thru with restoring, it says "Please try installing again."
