I have installed Fedora 17 to an iSCSI target by:

  1. Booting with the Fedora 17 ISO
  2. Chose LiveCD so I could install iscsi-initiator-utils
  3. Started the installer
  4. Chose iSCSI target from native Fedora installer
  5. Installed as normal

Using iPXE (gpxe/etherboot fork) to boot with sanboot iscsi:HOSTIP::::TARGET:LUN, but Fedora bombs after about 10 seconds with the following errors:

Cannot open font file True

dracut Warning: Unable to process initqueue
dracut Warning: /dev/disk/by-uuid/{UUID} does not exist

Dropping to debug shell


A Redhat fellow from this bugzilla suggested dracut-network (including the initramfs rebuild) and some kernel param voodoo, but I get the same errors.
