[ipxe-devel] Wimboot chained by PXElinux does not work with UEFI

Hi list,

My PXE mainly uses PXElinux but I managed to chain Wimboot in order to 
load WinPE from a .wim file. The sequence the following:
NIC PXE agent -> PXElinux -> Wimboot -> WIM file

With (U)EFI computers, the sequence is:
EFI -> PXElinux -> Wimboot -> WIM file

My problem is that Wimboot loads BCD, boot.sdi and boot.wim but then the 
machine automatically reboots. Same behavior occurs with a VM (ESXi 
6.0.0) and a physical machine (Dell Vostro laptop).

There is a post[1] about this issue, which suggest to request some help 
here. Does someone have a good idea to resolve this problem ?
