Hi iPXE developers,

First of all thanks for the great work don on this tool.
I saw an issue with PXE booting winpe with bootmgr.exe over tftp.
The wim image takes a lot of time to load. With iPXE it takes about 7 
minutes,
while with pxelinux.0  it loads in about 2,  on the same setup.
gPXE takes way more, 30 minutes!

Does anybody have a clue on why that  is?
Is this a known issue/ missing feature that pxelinux has ?

Any pointers in general on overcoming the gap is welcome.  I tried 
loading iPXE with
pxelinux and keeppxe option, but it didn't help.

Thanks,
    Alpar
