IntegrateDrv is a program that lets you integrate Plug and Play drivers into a Windows Installation.
Using this program, you can install Windows 2000 \ XP \ 2003 Directly to an iSCSI target.
There are two ways to use this program:
1. Create a new disk on your iSCSI target.
2. Create a primary partition on the disk you've just created (the partition has to be XP \ 2003 compatible, so it's best to create the partition from Windows XP \ Server 2003 OS).
3. Mark the new partition as active.
4. Format the partition you have just created.
5. Use winnt32.exe to create an installation of the OS you want to install on the new partition:
To install a 32-bit edition of Windows the command is:
D:\I386\winnt32.exe /syspart:c /tempdrive:c /makelocalsource /noreboot
To install a 64-bit edition of Windows the command is:
D:\AMD64\winnt32.exe /syspart:c /tempdrive:c /makelocalsource /noreboot
6. Select “New Installation (Advanced)” and complete the process of creating the installation on the disk.
7. Use IntegrateDrv to integrate the NIC drivers, Microsoft iSCSI Initiator and sanbootconf into the temporary Windows installation Directories:
if the computer used is the target computer, the command you should use is:
IntegrateDrv.exe /driver=..\Driver\E1000\x86 /driver=..\Drivers\iScsiPrt\x86 /driver=..\Driver\sanbootconf /local /preconf /target=C:\
if the computer used is the not the target computer, or you would like to use NICBootConf, the command you should use is:
IntegrateDrv.exe /driver=..\Driver\E1000\x86 /driver=..\Drivers\iScsiPrt\x86 /driver=..\Driver\sanbootconf /driver=..\Driver\nicbootconf /target=C:\
8. You will be asked to specify a default static TCP/IP address. if all goes well, this address will not be used, and instead sanbootconf / iScsiBP will set the address that was provided by your DHCP server.
9. Congratulations, you now have an iSCSI capable Windows XP \ 2003 installation, you can reboot your machine, and use the sanboot command to boot into the installation:
dhcp net0 sanboot iscsi:192.168.1.11::::iqn.2007-08.name.dns.target.my:iscsiboot
11. During GUI-mode installation phase, you'll be warned about installing unsigned drivers:
you can use IntegrateDrv as described in step 7 above to create an iSCSI capable Windows installation CD.
The easiest way is to use nLite to create a working directory, and then use IntegrateDrv to integrate the necessary drivers to this working directory using the /target switch, and then create a bootable ISO using nLite.
After you've created a CD with the necessary iSCSI drivers, you use the sanhook command to connect to the iSCSI target, and then exit iPXE and fall back to the CD-ROM (your BIOS should be set up accordingly):
dhcp net0 sanhook iscsi:192.168.1.11::::iqn.2007-08.name.dns.target.my:iscsiboot exit
If all goes well, and your BIOS is configured properly and bug-free, then Windows setup should start running from the CD-ROM and the iSCSI disk should be recognized.
