WIM Filename and wimboot - cspxe - 2019-07-24 18:21

Hello, I'm trying to boot a WIM with wimboot on EFI. When the filename for the WIM I use is boot.wim, it boots up just fine. However if I use a different filename (i.e. myboot.wim) I get a boot manager error (0xc000000f, A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.).

Does the WIM fiename have to be "boot.wim"?

boot.wim is defined in your BCD
but the normal way to do this is to use
initrd -n boot.wim server/my.wim boot.wim
