Hi Daniel,
>From the log it seems that indeed sanbootconf is not initialized, (I'm not sure if it's loaded or not because you didn't turn on "View > Verbose output" in WinDbg to show additional information)
maybe you've installed sanbootconf improperly somehow, or perhaps you have some kind of agressive anti-virus program that block the file-copying or registry changes.
make sure you have sanbootconf.sys under Windows\System32\Drivers, and that you have a registry key called "sanbootconf" under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

- You can also manually install sanbootconf using Control Panel > Add Hardware, and then selecting "I have already connected the hardware" > "Add a new hardware device" > "Install the hardware that I manually select" > "System Devices" and then point to the directory where sanbootconf.inf is located. (this will only install sanbootconf without applying some critical configuration)

  I've re-installed Windows XP and sanbootconf 1.0. It still giving me the same problem: windows reboots itself when the logo screen appears.

  Looking at the WinDbg report, i think the problem migth be that sanbootconf driver doesn´t load in the boot secuence.

  Anybody can tell me why it happends? Thanks for yout time.

    Thanks for the info, Shao 

    I've followed your advice and checked if sanbootconf driver was loaded, and it looks like it wasn't. I don't know why this happend, I installed the last version of sanbootconf with no error.

    I attach the new WinDbg capture with the result of the "lm" command.

      Hi again,

      I've upgraded to iPXE and to the new version of sanbootconf too, but I'm getting the same error: the client machines conects to the iscsi target and starts booting windows xp, until it reboots itself, giving a 0x00007b error in the WinDbg. 

      I attach the WinDbg output file. I'd appreciate any kind of help. I've been looking hard for any solution, but I found nothing...

        I've followed the how-to and I get the error report from WinDbg attached to this mail. I'd appreciate any information you can give me.

        It seems like sanbootconf driver doesn't load.
