Hi Shao 

I have the 2008 image in the cdrom, my boot order is 1st PXE then CDROM.  gPXE 
would boot the cd fine, it's just iPXE that seems to stick.

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"
