Additionally, all the documentation from Apple talks specifically of connecting two Macs, which though not evidence to the contrary, does not support the use-case.

comment Accessing a Macbook Pro in Target Disk mode over Thunderbolt from Windows
I ended up getting a FW800 card for the desktop which does work. I suspect the daisy-chain idea would not work: my inference is that the target disk mode on the MBP is a non-standard. That a MBP running Windows cannot see another in TDM is evidence of this I believe. The gigabit suggestion makes me curious though. I will have to check that out to see if the TCP overhead leaves it superior in bitrate to FW800 with block-level access...

That's just about what I was expecting :\. Thanks for your help! Too bad Apple courts the standard but then doesn't really implement it all the way. Looks like I'll be getting a FW card for the desktop…

There's a few devices in the 'Manager called "PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge" that appeared after Windows indicated it installed drivers for a new device. I was hoping to use TB-to-TB due to the extra speed (will hopefully be running VMs etc off an internal SSD on the MBP) and the time/money already invested in the current setup; I don't see a guarantee that FW won't have the same issue anyways. Does anyone have any experience with that? I'll give HFS Explorer a try tonight. Thanks for the suggestion.
