WinPE Network Boot fails, but ISO boot working

RE: WinPE Network Boot fails, but ISO boot working

one more time all the steps has been done as mentioned in

Still getting the blank screen after boot command present in the ipxe config file.

Here is the config file that I used
echo ========================================================
echo freeing all loaded images to ensure wimboot works
echo ========================================================

set base <%= repo_url.sub(%r{/$}, '') %>
kernel <%= file_url('wimboot', true) %>
initrd ${base}/amd64/media/bootmgr bootmgr
initrd ${base}/amd64/media/Boot/BCD BCD
initrd ${base}/amd64/media/Boot/Fonts/segmono_boot.ttf segmono_boot.ttf
initrd ${base}/amd64/media/Boot/Fonts/segoe_slboot.ttf segoe_slboot.ttf
initrd ${base}/amd64/media/Boot/Fonts/segoen_slboot.ttf segoen_slboot.ttf
initrd ${base}/amd64/media/Boot/Fonts/wgl4_boot.ttf wgl4_boot.ttf
initrd ${base}/amd64/media/Boot/boot.sdi boot.sdi
initrd ${base}/amd64/media/sources/boot.wim boot.wim
echo ========================================================
echo now booting WinPE client

Let us know how to debug the ipxe. FYI: by including pxeboot.n12 in the dhcpd.conf we are able to boot the winpe.

At present we are ok if its slow by using TFTP but we want the solution to work with ipxe so that we can use "razor" software thats provided by puppet labs. Is there a way to chain from ipxe to pxe to take the pxeboot.n12 from the tftp location.
