RE: Windows 2012 R2 Black Screen
Thank you for the suggestions! You are correct in that I'm using PCBIOS mode and not EFI. Here is the behavior being experienced:

I tried as suggested with less than 4GB of ram, but was met with the same black screen.

I then added the gui option, and was given a screen with a frown face (which is how I feel) and a message.

Here is ipxe script:
echo ======================================================================
echo freeing all loaded images to ensure wimboot works
echo ======================================================================

set base <%= repo_url.sub(%r{/$}, '') %>
kernel <%= file_url('wimboot', true) %> gui
initrd ${base}/bootmgr                      bootmgr
initrd ${base}/boot/bcd                        BCD
initrd ${base}/boot/fonts/segmono_boot.ttf  segmono_boot.ttf
initrd ${base}/boot/fonts/segoen_slboot.ttf segoen_slboot.ttf
initrd ${base}/boot/fonts/segoe_slboot.ttf  segoe_slboot.ttf
initrd ${base}/boot/fonts/wgl4_boot.ttf     wgl4_boot.ttf
initrd ${base}/boot/boot.sdi                boot.sdi
initrd ${base}/razor-winpe.wim              boot.wim

echo ======================================================================
echo now booting WinPE client

I'm using Puppet Razor and have followed the below steps to build the winpe image:

Thanks for the response. Not sure where to go from here.
