Good day, Trevor.


Exactly how are you booting the CD-ROM via iPXE?  SAN?  MEMDISK?  Doing
this is actually a bit tricky, so I'm not sure what method you're using.

I've been testing both gPXE (1.01) and latest iPXE on HP Blade servers
both using undionly.kpxe.

With gPXE I'm able to attach to the target and begin a windows 2008 R2
install from CD Rom, however windows can not make the device bootable. I
decided to try with iPXE to see if windows would view the target as a
bootable device it attaches the target fine but it will not boot from
the cdrom to start the install, it just hangs with "Trying to boot
CDRom", sometimes it would just hang at "No more network devices"
