Convert USB Boot to iPXE

Convert USB Boot to iPXE
Hello iPXE,

Since we're using 7 methods to boot to different scenario's, i am asked to investigate iPXE as an option.

I see that iPXE is able to boot machines from the network using either Legacy or (U)EFI which is perfect; because we are going to have to support all the variants, so the i386 & x64 UEFI and Legacy systems.

As of now, i'm using WDS to distribute iPXE that distributes pxelinux that displays a menu that either is able to boot to an ISO or WDS.

What I'm trying to do is to remove WDS from my enviroment and use iPXE to boot the ISO's and WIM's, so that I can have a single menu and other options attached to that.

However, I've already figured out that booting to ISO is impossible on UEFI. So then I have the following question:

The company that provides us with the ISO, also provides us with the ability to create a bootable USB-stick; on this stick there are multiple efi files (all the needed files).

I'm wondering if it is possible to use the files on the USB Stick to make iPXE able to boot to the ISO via HTTP.

Sadly our company does not have SAN-disks, so that is not a valid option.

I'd love to hear,
