kmutil returns: Error: Invalid Mach-O boot properties

See original GitHub issue

I’ve tried following the QuickStart instructions to the dot on a MacBook Pro with M1 Pro. The mac came with macOS monteray pre-installed.

However, I hit a snag when trying to use kmutil:

-bash-3.2# kmutil configure-boot -c m1n1.macho -C -v /Volumes/Linux
By setting a custom boot object, you will be putting your system into Permissive Security.

Are you sure you want to do this? (enter y or n) y
found valid Mach-O binary, deriving Mach-O boot properties...
Error Domain=KMErrorDomain Code=71 "Fileset Error: Invalid Mach-O boot properties" UserInfo={NSLocalizedDescription=Fileset Error: Invalid Mach-O boot properties}

Any ideas?

We need to figure out what changed. The goal of this project is to make things work, not to work around problems.
