Full Version: install windows7 problem
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I want to install windows7 to an iscsi target using pxe. I have configured dhcp and tftp correctly and I use undionly.kpxe as the boot file.

When booting from undionly.kpxe, I got an error:
[Link:up, TX:0 TXE:1 RX:0 RXE:0]
[TXE: 1 X "Network Unreachable (http://ipxe.org/28086011)"]

But it can load my boot file install.ipxe in tftp server.
my install.ipxe file:
dhcp net0
set keep-san 1
sanboot iscsi:

Then it can boot from CD normally.
If I use windows7 iso in CD I can not see the iscsi disk during the installation. But if I use centos iso it works as intended!

Anyone can help? Thanks!
It is normal. You can't mount an ISO using HTTP (sanhook) AND have an iscsi volume mounted for install (only one int13 drive can be hooked at the same time).

You'll need to load WinPE over the network instead. See this howto http://ipxe.org/howto/winpe for details.
