Please take a look at http://ipxe.org/wimboot
It's important that your initrd lines specify the filename twice, e.g:

initrd http://69ddwrt.no-ip.org:54321/tftpboot/Boot/bootmgr.exe bootmgr.exe

Only if you specify the second filename iPXE will generate a CPIO
archive containing those files(i.e. what wimboot expects).
