Hi list,

I have a problem with trying to boot WinPE 3.0 (prepared according to: 
I've prepared it under Win7 Pro.

I have downladed from git repository current tree, prepared the ISO 
image of iPXE (under Debian Squeeze)

I have set up the iSCSI target under FreeNAS

After booting my machine from iPXE ISO image i type following commands:

set keep-san 1
sanhook --drive 0x80 --no-describe 
sanboot --drive 0x81 --no-describe

WinPE stops during boot and displays following message:

File: \Boot\BCD
Status: 0xc000000e
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration 

When I do not attach iSCSI target and only boot the WinPE iso file, 
everything is OK, but (of course) I can't install Windows under my iSCSI 

Does anyone have an idea what I am doing wrong?
