Windows 10 (1804) installation on iscsi device
Hello,

im trieing since days(!) to get windows installation running on an iscsi target.


basicly what i followed this tutorial: "http://it-joe.com/windows/iscsi_pxe_boot" but also googlet a lot and tried different things.

Im running into the same problem as "poekel"

Quote:Hi,
I earlier stated that i had problems that had to do with -> Windows cannot be installed on this disk
I have solved that.......
Win 10 installs on the iscsi target but at the end i get a message that some MANDATORY driver CANNOT be INSTALLED

What i tried so far is quoted here:
Quote:To be honest im out of idears. I successfully installed windows 8, with this tutorial which worked out like a charm.

I upgraded those version 8 to 10 and it complained about a not signed driver (prob. the ethernet driver) and was not booting anymore (if i remember right) prob this is the whole issue whats it about?

I also tried other things like:
- Use another software as iscsi server - didnt helped

- Tried different versions of Windows 10 (1803,1706,1606) including their specifig WAIKs - didned helped

- Used physical Hardware / Different Virtualisations Software (Virtualbox/VMware) - didnt helped
- Attached a disk during installation but installed it to iscsi - didndt helped

- Modified ipxe to support only "undionly" -> didnt helped

- Tried to patch windowsPE (any version) with iscsicpl -> didnt get it running (?) maybe helps to connect it manual instead with ipxe do get the proper driver installed (?)

- Tried to attach different Hardware Nics -> didnt get it running

- Tried to install it with the same env on a local disk -> worked -> but didnt helped to solve this issue

- Tried to install windows 7 -> didnt worked because of missing signed driver

- Tried different versions of "wimload" -> either doesnt helped or doesnt started winPE

Do you have further idears maybe? I have on my list maybe to use EFI no clue if this helps out..


Can anybody help me out with this issue or does have any idear whats going on?

Edit:

Figured out more:

If im using a Virtualbox Client and attach the disk via iscsi there (yeah thats possible, but only through cli), im able to install windows 10 without problems.
Later when i remove the iscsi from virtualbox and boot it 'normally' (still virtualbox as hypervisor but sanboot as ipxe feature) its booting from the network.

So somehow the Installer is maybe broken to let me install my things? Sad

RE: Windows 10 (1804) installation on iscsi device
The link you are pointing to does the horrible thing of setting up an winpe iso that is booted via sanboot, there is much better tools for that - wimboot.

You have written on IRC - and I can respond there to try and help you - but it won't do much good if you leave the channel.

If instead what you want to do is install from a booted winpe - onto a iSCSI target that is a different matter that have had many getting gray hairs.
There have not been any (usefull) information given about what your environment is; (we need one specific case that we can work with, and the circumstances in that case, not mixed with anything else)
* What is the NIC you are using?
* Have you modified the winpe in any way (especially added drivers)
* Are the winpe from the same source as the installation files you are using?

After reading over what you have written once again, I'm quite sure that what you are seeing is the windows setup application starting and is unable to find any installation media.
What you have to do (and which is described on that site) is to open a prompt (press shfit+f10) and run wpeinit etc as described in http://forum.ipxe.org/showthread.php?tid...2#pid13472 and then you will have to mount a installation share.

I don't think anyone have or will be able to get a pure windows iso to sanboot and be available as an installation media, the reason being that network needs to be started properly before any iSCSI devices will be detected.

a few other notes:
* don't use set keep-san 1 - legacy and not needed
* don't use syslinux, iPXE should be able to do everything on it's own
* don't use memdisk - if you are than that probably explains your issues even more.

If nothing of this helps then post exact configuration, including NIC etc with pciid as described above, as well as iPXE scripts that you are using, a link to image with the screen that you are seeing with the error message. - The goal with the description should be that anyone can recreate your exact scenario, that way more people can reproduce and help you find a solution.

Read the FAQ before posting.
Did you include relevant ipxe.org error urls?

Sorry about that i also for sure tried out the wimboot method, from http://ipxe.org/wimboot. This didnt do a difference

I restarted my computer for pxe testing purposes sorry about that

i dont get this part sorry?

(2018-09-03 18:03)NiKiZe Wrote:  * What is the NIC you are using?

Virtualbox default NIC (virtual client) Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540OEM) / Intel V82579V / Different realteks on physically hardware

(2018-09-03 18:03)NiKiZe Wrote:  * Have you modified the winpe in any way (especially added drivers)

Tried both, vanilla winPE as well as different scripts for example one which i copy and pasted together ( https://pastebin.com/SLdSpc1p ) for adding iscsicpl stuff (i think stuff like this is outdated since a long time)? I didnt touched drivers in WinPE.

(2018-09-03 18:03)NiKiZe Wrote:  * Are the winpe from the same source as the installation files you are using?

Yes as WINPE was always matching the iso which im installing. Tried here 1803,1706,1607

Thats sadly wrong, i see the windows setup, as well as the installation media also the windows setup copys data over but the last step (!) shortly before the reboot fails with the mantadory driver error message (will attach a screen soon)

All three things i already figured out today, replaced syslinux (menu management is possible with ipxe as well), memdisk was replaced by wimboot and keep-san i wasnt sure, but if you say i can remove it ill do.
