install win7 on iscsi target - sergeyboev - 2012-08-14 09:17

I'm trying to setup win7 on iscsi target some days. I see iscsi target from installed winxp.
I boot through pxe undionly.kpxe and can see as register SAN device 0x80.
Next step I press Ctrl-B and exit for booting from DVD but installer could not find any drive
Some question about scripting
dhcp net0
set keep-san 1
echo root-path
set root-path iscsi:
echo sanboot
sanhook iscsi:
prompt #<- not working
As i think many instructions don't need
Correct me please

Installing by doing "exit" and letting the BIOS continue installation from DVD has problems on a lot of machines. It never worked well for myself. The new wimboot method of running WinPE and starting the installation from the ramdisk is much more reliable. You can just as well install from DVD as from a network path (CIFS/SMB).
