thank you, i use your command , successfully made a iso file
I have followed these steps, as well as about 6 other sets from other locations. These are by far the most concise.
I am trying to build a MOJAVE.ISO file so that I can stand up a second VM (the one I am on now is HIGH SIERRA 10.13).
I have the FULL 6.05GB Mojave Installer.app file.
Followed the steps (even the corrections posted) and have the MOJAVE.ISO file.
Placed on the datastore for the ESXI server (which has a 10.6, 10.8, 10.13 installation already). When I boot the new VM with the MOJAVE.ISO file as the boot drive. I get a black screen with a WHITE "NO" symbol. After about 10-15 seconds, it goes the EFI BOOT screen.
Any ideas? It acts as if the ISO is not bootable.
I did one of these yesterday (another set of instructions) for SIERRA 10.12, and it booted first time, and allowed the install.
