 +Restarted Win7 iSCSI install test to be sure the environment was consistent. ​ Erased MBR on physical disk on test machine (''​dd if=/​dev/​zero of=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1''​),​ deleted iSCSI disk and created a new one (20 GB this time to be sure space requirements would be met), and started from scratch.
 +
 +The same results as before were observed: Windows would not install on the iSCSI disk without the physical disk connected, and it installed the bootloader on the physical disk, not the iSCSI target. ​ The physical disk contains bootmgr and the related infrastructure. ​ The iSCSI partition was also not marked active.
 +
 +I also attempted to perform the procedure in QEMU, but the Windows 7 installer got stuck for over an hour on the stage before disk selection, so it could not be tested.
