Could you please elaborate on your problems BOOTING Windows 7 with the native iSCSI initiator?
I'm about to implement iSCSI at home but haven't done so yet. I thought booting from an iSCSI target required special HW with iSCSI BIOS support, or did I get something wrong here? Maybe you mean that booting Windows 7 takes longer when native SW iSCSI initiator service is started?
