[ipxe-devel] iPXE and Windows Server 2003

I am using iPXE with Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition Servers. The DHCP, 
DNS, Web Server (IIS), TFTP all run using Windows Server 2003 Enterprise 
Edition. This is a Windows Server 2003 Environment.

I have set iPXE to boot from the TFTP Server (Windows Server 2003 Ent Ed.) and 
this then loads undionlyu.kpxe. I then try to load IPXE.KRN for a Linux Kernel 
and I get the following error:

.IPXE.KRN. Requested memory not available (http://ipxe.org/46038101)

Requested memory not available (http://ipxe.org/46038101)
Could not chain image: Requested memory not available (http://ipxe.org/46038101)

Looking up the error on ipex.org gives the following:
"This error indicates that you are trying to load an image that does not fit 
into your system memory map. For example, the image may request that it is 
loaded at an address that is already in use by iPXE or by the system BIOS. 

This error is known to occur with some images produced by the old mknbi tool. If 
you are using an NBI image, try regenerating your image using the more 
up-to-date wraplinux tool."

How can I use the wraplinux tool in Windows?

I want to load a Linux Kernel to be able to install an O/S or update firmware on 
my servers.

Any suggestions how can can use iPXE in a Windows environment to do this?

I cannot install Linux.
