For Vista, you can either:

  • adapt the Windows XP AoE guide. Most of it is the same.
  • adapt the Windows 2008 iSCSI guide. Vista has built-in support for booting over iSCSI.

Even if you succeed starting the installation with some trick for the original installation meida, For example, booting the PE by using the windows 2008 CD. You won't succeed either.

Everytime you try to start it, You'll see BSoD.
