-====== Windows Server 2003 boot from SAN ====== 
- 
-Windows Server 2003 supports booting from either an iSCSI or AoE SAN.  You cannot install directly to the SAN target; you must first install Windows Server 2003 to a physical disk. 
- 
-===== Installation ===== 
- 
-Start by installing Windows Server 2003 to a physical disk.  It is best to use an external USB, FireWire, or eSATA disk; this will make later stages easier. 
- 
-When installing, use a small partition (around 4GB) rather than the whole disk.  At the partitioning screen: 
- 
-{{screenshots:​win2k3_setup.png?​360x198|Windows Server 2003 setup}} 
- 
-press **C** to create a partition and enter **4096** as the size (in MB).  You should then see a screen that looks like: 
- 
-{{screenshots:​win2k3_setup_partitioned.png?​360x198|Windows Server 2003 after partitioning}} 
- 
-You can now press Enter to install Windows Server 2003 to this partition. ​ The reset of the installation will proceed as normal. 
- 
-===== Preparation for SAN boot ===== 
- 
-Now you must select whether you will use iSCSI or AoE as your SAN technology:

- 
-  * [[sanboot:​winnt_aoe|Add AoE boot support to Windows Server 2003]]
