Can't install on an iSCSI booted WinXP PC

Description

I have a windows XP SP3 pc which boots from an iscsi server using www.etherboot.org code and recipe and microsoft iscsi initiator to make it boot from the network.

 http://etherboot.org/wiki/sanboot/winxp

When I try to install virtualbox its installer disconnects my pc from the network while it tries to install bridged/host network drives; this makes my pc bootstrap since the network is its C:\ (boot) disk.

Install never completes; upon reboot windows finds new hardware (the virtual network cards) and tries to install their drivers, if I let it install them it re-boots and so on..
