I’ve been using MDS for a few weeks, going through and finalizing all the packages I have to install, and one of them is giving me problems. Of course, it’s the largest and most difficult one to create – a Winclone package of a Boot Camp partition of Windows 10. The PKG itself works fine, as far as I can tell. It installs correctly on a separate system, boots, no problem. The problem, maybe, is that the PKG is 14.88gb. When MDS goes through the package list, it copies everything onto the USB drive, but when it gets to the Winclone package, it fails says “An error occurred embedding the package /var/folders/vs/3ksnq0ns5yb9_v2mbrzkyy300000gn/T/BE93C038-A0DD-4FD7-85FA-29EDC0E33606.pkg, Please check the package and free space and try again.” (The file name and path appear random each time.)
I formatted the USB stick a couple times, and it’s brand new anyway so I don’t think that’s the problem. It’s a 32gb USB also, and the contents of MDS are less than 22g (6gb for Mojave and 15gb for Windows). I removed all the other packages from the MDS for testing, but it hasn’t helped. I also tested on MDS 1.4, and the 1.6 beta, build 11356. Both give the same error.
This package is an updated version of a previous one that worked, but I don’t remember the version of MDS that it worked on. It was a couple weeks ago, so maybe 1.3 or 1.2, but I’m not sure, and I don’t have the old version anymore to test. The file names are Win10LTSCv1.pkg and WIN10LTSCv2.pkg, and the sizes are 14.8gb and 14.88gb, so not a big difference between them.
