I try the method you posted to boot diskless windows 7.I had follow all the steps closely but I was only able to boot until the windows loading screen and it just stop there. Do you encounter any issues with it? Any advise is greatly appreciated.

My advice is to follow instructions from the http://ipxe.org web-site, instead. Usually it is handy to install Michael Brown's sanbootconf driver so you can see network information on the Windows splash screen. It will probably yield useful information for diagnosing your problem.

I have attached the TFTP log as reference.

Since you are getting past all TFTP processes, the TFTP log isn't useful, except to show me that the instructions you followed include a silly step. It is silly to run ipxe.iso from GRUB4DOS when G4D can run ipxe.lkrn, instead.

Can Use pxelinux.0 for start boot.

in pxelinux.cfg\default

------------------------------------------

DEFAULT menu.c32
PROMPT 0
ALLOWOPTIONS 0
TIMEOUT 1
#NOESCAPE 1

#MENU SHIFTKEY 1
MENU TITLE PXE Boot

LABEL ipxe.lkrn
MENU LABEL Windows7 64Bit
    KERNEL ipxe.lkrn
    INITRD conf.ipxe

----------------------------------------------------

conf.ipxe file

--------------------------------------------

#!ipxe
set keep-san 1
sanboot iscsi:192.168.1.9::::iqn.install

-------------------------------------------------------

That is BIOS -> PXE -> pxelinux.0 (which is PXELINUX) -> ipxe.lkrn (which is iPXE).  But you can also do BIOS -> PXE -> ipxelinux.0 (which is iPXE -> PXELINUX) -> sanboot.c32 (a Syslinux COMBOOT32 module).  That is, if iPXE is loaded before PXELINUX, you can use sanboot.c32 from your PXELINUX config-file to boot the iSCSI SAN.

If u want use iscsi.  U can use starwind and set .img for masterfile and use .ibv option auto-restored snapshot for all client.

Thanks for this info. I followed the steps. So testing it out I get the DHCP to load on the thinclient but then TFTP times out.

 

 

 

I am using SolarWinds TFTP server on the Server Machine. Not in the VM machine

 

The TFTP root has menu.lst grldr and ipxe.iso

 

The Config.ipxe has the correct IP address (same as the DHCP server)

 

So any ideas that I should look into?

 

Thanks for your time

Boot WinXP diskless in LAN is very interesting but with iSCSI also possible Install WinXP from and to SAN device :-) Please read my tutorials:
Install WinXP from real CD to SAN device
Install WinXP from virtual CD (RAM-ISO) to SAN device
Install WinXP from virtual CD (SAN-ISO) to SAN device
