[ipxe-devel] Howto evaluate needed WinPE-Files?

Hi Oliver,
I'm not 100% sure what's up from that screenshot, but we can try some things to narrow it down. Can you try using bootmgr.exe directly instead of bootmgr? Bootmgr.exe can be found inside the Windows PE WIM at Windows\Boot\PXE\bootmgr.exe, and you can just replace where you pull down bootmgr with bootmgr.exe in your iPXE script. Perhaps wimboot is having trouble expanding it from inside of bootmgr.
Otherwise, to confirm, you never see the blue Windows logo, correct?

      WinPE 5.x can work without issue with iPXE. Are you
        including the fonts?

        Perhaps you can provide the output of wimboot before the
          screen goes black?


    An image before the screen is getting dark is appended.
