Problem with creating netboot image MacOS


I've a problem with Media manager when I want start the creation for Yosemite, Media manager said that :

Usage: make_netboot.sh -s <source_path> -d <destination_path> -p <admin password hash> -v <vnc password hash>
Example: sudo ./make_netboot.sh -s /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ DVD/ -d /Users/Shared/kace_netboot.nbi  -p admin-v admin
installer: The OS Install failed with error: Error Domain=NSPOSIXErrorDomain Code=1 "Operation not permitted".

So I open a terminal and I've written the line, I've an error again.. see picture below


Should I go into a specific directory ?

I made the netboot image with a mac running on 10.10.3 mid 2008 with 4gb of RAM and an image download in 10.10.5 is it a problem if it's not exactly the same version ?
I've tried with installESD.dmg mount with the Mac and with installESD.dmg installed on USB stick, only once I have no error but Media manager have crashed after 2 hours

I have a last question, I need to install other version of MacOS (when Yosemite work) but I don't have the InstallESD.dmg in the sharedfolder on the DVD of installation. I only multiple folder. Can I create a netboot image anyway ? 

Sorry for the many questions... thank you in advance for your help

(Let me know if you don't understand something)

Best regards,

Are you imaging a brand new MacBook?  I often see this when attempting to image a fresh-from-the-factory MacBook that has El Capitan installed, and it's caused by the disk having CoreStorage volumes present.  These steps will resolve the issue:

  1. Press Command + Spacebar to open Spotlight Search.
  2. Type “Disk Utility” and press enter to start Disk Utility.
  3. Select the Macintosh HD volume in the left pane.
  4. Click the Erase tab in the right pane.
  5. Set the Format option to “Mac OS Extended (Journaled).”
  6. Click the Erase... button.
  7. Wait for the process to complete.
  8. Close Disk Utility and proceed with imaging.

These steps are from my imaging documentation, which I wrote for new techs who may not have extensive knowledge of OS X.
