Yeah, that's what we've done for years with ISO's from WAIK using memdisk with ISO support, works great. That's actually the reason we started using iPXE(LINUX), to enable HTTP transfers of ISO (and other) files.

My WDS guy wasn't sure if everything was set up OK for WDS if you skip wdsnbp.com and do not set DHCP options 66/67 to the WDS server, but it certainly seems to work. Much cleaner and easier than umpteen levels of chain loading.
