Wimboot + pxelinux + WDS

I currently have a WDS server up and running, with 357 different images.
My problem is that it takes forever to find the image you are looking for.

Since there is no way do change the default WDS boot menu(to my knowledge) I thought I'd use wimboot+pxelinux to make a custom menu where I could organize all of my images better. The only problem is that when I use:

LABEL test
com32 linux.c32 wimboot
APPEND wimboot initrdfile=boot/bootmgr,boot/bcd,boot/boot.sdi,Images/Win7_Pro_x32_SP1.wim

Windows starts loading but prompts me to insert installation media blah blah.

How can I install windows via wimboot and pxelinux using my .wim files from WDS?

I'm open to suggestions!

RE: Wimboot + pxelinux + WDS
Normally you use iPXE and wimboot directly, like explained here:

If you combine that with iPXE menus (and sub-menus) it should be easier to find the image you're looking for. A good example of using multiple menus and navigating back and forth between them can be found here:
