I have tested with iSCSI; WinPE _is_ able to see (and install to) the 
sanhooked drive.  There's an annoying 60-second timeout while Windows waits to 
see if the (virtual) boot disk is going to show up as an iSCSI disk, but once 
it times out it does all work as expected.

How did you create your WinPE image?
