Dual setup for Macs with Mac OS and Windows OS
We have implemented a number of requests related to macOS imaging in the past, and while this specific remaining request has a number of votes we cannot proceed with moving this further into our development process, and here’s why:
For macOS (10.14+), imaging is considered a deprecated technology and is no longer supported. The APFS file system, which is now mandatory for macOS, means imaging is no longer possible. And the newer Apple T2 chip prevents net booting, which is another requirement for imaging. Apple’s recommended replacement for macOS Imaging is provisioning through Modern Device Management and transitioning from the SDA to KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager for macOS device management can provide similar and added benefits, such as:
• Zero-touch Enrollment
• Built in OS support—including support for 10.14+
• Remote Access Benefits
• Post-Deployment Management
Not sure if this would be helpful from a post from so long ago... http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/dual-booting-macs-with-windows-10-using-k2000
I work in higher education. We have 30 computers in two classrooms that must have bootcamp to be useful for all instructors' needs.
we've stopped using the kace completely and gone back to our old solution of using a mac server and deploystudio. it supports multicast, it easily deploys bootcamp images, it does everything that we all want the kace to do, and it's free. I won't be renewing my kace license unless some drastic changes occur between now and march.

We would be interested in this because we have a group using bootcamp and parallels to run the windows os and mac os simultaneously and we have not found an easy to image the machine with both Operating Systems.

For me, at least, it's extremely important. We're an Art college with an even split between Mac OS and Windows. To simplify the hardware platform, we use Apple iMacs everywhere on campus. Presently I'm imaging half the machines using the KACE (Mac OS only) and utilizing a competing product (harder to manage) for my dual platform needs. It would help massively to be able to at least grab a disk image from a master mac and deploy said image back to a machine; just imaging, not even a managed install.
