You might have luck using wimboot to boot your WinPE images directly instead of relying on the Microsoft-supplied tools for booting into WDS. The SSCM iPXE howto might also be of interest.

the Slowness on WDS has been resolved, I verified the issue isn't with iPXE but rather a problem with BOOTMGR.EXE. you need an older version of BOOTMGR.EXE, the one from Windows Vista proved reliable and deliver good performance. This Solution was found here

From a Vista CD 32bit extract bootmgr.exe from the file boot.wim located under sources file, to extract you must have WAIK installed and from the WAIK CLI type :

imagex /mount e:\vistax86\boot.wim 2 e:/mounted_images

then simply copy the file bootmgr.exe from e:/mounted_images folder to both your x86 and X64 folders paste their overwriting what you have there.

Hopefully that helps someone else.
