I'm running Windows Server 2012 R2, Standard Edition and have set up an iSCSI target, which I'm wanting a client to be able to:
- Connect to in such a way that I can install Windows 7.
- Allow client to select which target should be booted.
- Boot to said target.
This is all very doable using something like iPXE, however iPXE does not have the drivers for my NIC; the drivers do exist for Windows. My thinking is possibly being able to use something like WinPE to essentially act as a replacement for iPXE, complete with driver support etc.
I'm at a loss to if WinPE is even up to this task; I know WinPE comes into play after iPXE has hooked to the iSCSI to start the Windows 7 setup, but is WinPE able to connect to an iSCSI target and boot it?
