Hey Guys,

Currently building some VMs in one of our Test Labs to test Netbooted Deployments using Absolute Manage on a series of MacBook Pros, issue is, the System Image Utility produces me a 12GB DMG, unfortunately, I need a lot more 'Virtual' space than this.

Once booted the MacBook only has 1GB free space and ideally I need about 30GB for temporary storage while the deployment happens.

Ideally, I'd like to instruct SIU to create a 100GB image to NetBoot from. How would I go about this?
