Since I used keep-san = 1 then the iSCSI drive stayed mounted and showed up as a local hard drive to the windows 7 installer CD.

I cannot reproduce this ability with iPXE.
I can still boot to windows 7 with gPXE and install on blank iSCSI drives with gPXE.
With iPXE I cannot boot from or install to iSCSI.

What script (or DHCP configuration) are you using to hook the SAN disk and exit without unhooking?
