CPIO magic error

RE: CPIO magic error
You've forgotten the second parameter to the initrd lines. They are supposed to look like this:

initrd http://myserver/winpe/bootmgr bootmgr

That second mention of "bootmgr" is very important. That instructs iPXE to create a standalone CPIO archive in memory and name the file "bootmgr". Without this extra param on initrd lines wimboot doesn't work as expected, because the windows files are not CPIO archives. They need to be wrapped in memory.
