I am not familiar with a self-generated WinPE image, not exactly sure
what it is. But sure, I'd love a copy of the script and check it out.
It would be great if it did what I needed to in order to get my iSCSI
support working on nVidia NICs.

Just for a good (short) read, check out
http://etherboot.org/wiki/hardwareissues. If you scroll down to
nForce, there is an explanation of how nVidia NICs act differently
than all the others in regards to communication with the PCI bus. This
was the only info I could find that even remotely explained the
strange situation I was seeing.
