Currently i can boot my custom winpe5.0 in BIOS mode (bootmgr.exe) with wimboot 2.2.4/2.2.5 and the latest ipxe version

My problem come when i'm trying to use bootx64.efi, for booting Winpe 5.0 in UEFI mode.

my ipxe script :
kernel http://x.x.x.x/tests/wimboot/wimboot pause
initrd http://x.x.x.x/tests/winpe5/x64/bootx64.efi    bootx64.efi
initrd http://x.x.x.x/tests/winpe5/x64/boot/bcd        bcd
initrd http://x.x.x.x/tests/winpe5/x64/boot/boot.sdi    boot.sdi
initrd http://x.x.x.x/tests/winpe5/x64/sources/boot.wim    boot.wim

For an unknow reason wimboot use the bootmgre.exe extract from the boot.wim
"found file ... \Windows\Boot\PXE\bootmgr.exe"
instead of the bootx64.efi retrieve previously

Someone have already succes to install windows in UEFI with ipxe + wimboot, please ?
Where is my mystake ?

Since a recent version of wimboot you don't need to download bootx64.efi separately anymore. It is extracted from boot.wim automatically based on if you're using UEFI or legacy bios environment.

Upgrade to the latest version of wimboot and get rid of that initrd line and you should be good.
