@Andy Tim
Your posted link gives the message "This topic does not exist yet". Is it normal?

@all
By the way, I am searching a way to boot full XP through network/PXE. Currently there are a lot of solutions for installing XP/Vista... or for booting WinPE 1.x, 2.x with PXE, but I do not find yet a a solution to boot full XP, except maybe AoE or iSCSI (which seemingly require additional hardware).

Is there a solution without requiring additional hardware to boot XP (or maybe other OSes) through network (gPXE...) ? :idea:

There is an illustration using AoE booting XP (diskless) :

I don't see the requirement for additional hardware? :idea:

Unless you mean SAN booting, which of course requires a SAN:

For me iSCSI requires hardware, but maybe am I wrong?
If you googled "iscsi hardware" there are lot of occurrences.

By the way, from http://en.wikipedia....A_over_Ethernet :
"The AoE specification is 12 pages[1] compared with iSCSI's 257 pages[2]."

Since gPXE supports AoE, maybe it would be the winning couple?

Also if you google for iSCSI Cialis:

but that doesn't mean that Cialis is actually needed. :idea:

Hardware for WHAT? :)

You need an iSCSI target and an iSCSI Initiator.

And of course you need some hardware (a PC) to run the target, and one to run the initiator, but nothing else AFAIK.

The link has been changed to http://etherboot.org...t_winnt_sanboot

You can serve AoE and iSCSI SANs via either hardware or software.
