Unregistered SAN device

I tried to set up iPXE to my iSCSI target on which I plan to install Windows 7 but it seems like I have some troubles:

There is an Unregistered SAN Device error.

When I do same settings for gPXE then everything is working fine, only iPXE have troubles. Any one have some ideas?

RE: Unregistered SAN device
As the error page, , tells you (look at the bottom), "This error usually indicates that the SAN disk is empty, and does not yet contain a bootable operating system."

You need to use the sanhook command, , to "hook" the iSCSI target as a local BIOS drive, and THEN start the installer. This can be done in a multiple different ways, and depending on your BIOS, different solutions offer different challenges. You can try to just exit from iPXE and boot the Windows 7 installer from DVD, you could boot WinPE and start the installer from it, , or you could use Microsoft WDS (Windows Deployment Services), as shown here:
