-====== Preparing Windows Server 2003 for iSCSI boot ====== 
-These instructions assume that you have an installation of Windows Server 2003 on a local hard disk.  We will make this installation iSCSI-boot-capable,​ then copy it to a remote iSCSI target and boot from it. 
-If you have not yet applied Service Pack 2 or higher, you will need to install hotfix KB902113, available via http://​support.microsoft.com/​kb/​902113/​en-us. ​ Note that this hotfix cannot be downloaded directly; it must be requested from Microsoft Product Support Services. ​ It's probably easier to install Service Pack 2. 
-You will also need to install the boot-capable Microsoft iSCSI Initiator. ​ You must obtain this from http://​connect.microsoft.com by signing up with the invitation code ms-8RR8-6K43. ​ This is **not** the standard Microsoft iSCSI Initiator; you need the boot-capable version. 
-Reboot after installing, and check that the system comes up correctly. ​ You can now proceed to [[iscsiboot#​Transferring the operating system image to an iSCSI target]].
