Hi there!

I'm wondering Is there a way to fully load ISO-image via iPXE?
Let me explain. I have ISO that contains wim-file (WinPE) with additional Program folder that connecting on the start WinPE.

I know two way to load ISO:
1) via sanboot;
2) via memdisk.

I've tried to boot ISO via sanboot by http but I got the following error:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert you Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
File: \Boot\BCD
Status: 0xc000000e
Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

Inspite of IIS HTTP server supports ranged requests HTTP due to its specific transfer cannot load this ISO.
So I decided to use memdisk. With memdisk WinPE was loaded but it haven't include Program folder. When I try to load this ISO directly (from USB/DVD) it connects this Program folder.

So could help me to fully load this ISO like it happens via direct way USB/DVD?

Thank you!
You can't boot WinPE directly from a sanbooted ISO. You need to load the installer support files from a Windows networking share (using e.g. Samba). Please see http://ipxe.org/howto/winpe for details and report back if you're still having issues.
