I'm trying to use iPXE to diskless install Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit to a
10GB iSCSI disk (ubuntu 10.10 and IET). No disks are found by the
Windows 7 installer.
Lun 0 Path=/var/log/iscsi/w7.dd,Type=fileio
Computer: Dell Latitude D830. PXE boot gpxelinux.0 for a syslinux menu
system, then load undionly.0 (ipxe 1.0.0+ - 987b825?)
(tried directly booting undionly straight from PXE, but that didn't
make a difference).
Ctrl-B / dhcp / set keep-san 1 set skip-san-boot 1 / sanboot
iscsi:192.168.1.96::::iqn.2011-04.name.jl:w7 / exit
(Registered / Preserving SAN device 0x80)
next boot is Win7 install CD.

networking support for iSCSI

IP address received: 192.168.1.151 (as well as an IPv6 address -
which should be irrelevant).
ping 192.168.1.96 - works.
"No drives were found. Click load driver to provide a mass storage
driver for installation".
I've tried with and without a physical HD in the laptop. I've tried
with both ATA and AHCI modes on the SATA controller (in case it is
I've also tried with sanhook iscsi instead of sanboot... None of these
I know that iscsi works in general - because I can boot Windows XP from
an iscsi disk (sanbootconf/windows iscsi boot drivers), and because the
drive registers in iPXE sanhook.
I've attached setupact.log. Any ideas on what I should try next?
