Gavin,

My thanks for your testing!  Great to hear it's working for someone else.
 Sorry about the hackiness ;)

Well... it appears to be open source... ;)

As I understand it, sanboot was rewritten some time ago, and the
implementation works in such a way that sanbooting a local disk *happens *to
work, as opposed to being *designed* to work.  It's extremely robust with
SAN devices, but since booting local disks is really out of the scope of
iPXE, it may be unlikely to see sanboot tweaked to make local booting more
robust... hence the use of GRUB4DOS here :)

Best Regards,
Andrew
