[ipxe-devel] iPXE error

Dear developer,

I'm trying to deploy Windows 7 over http via iPXE firmware...

I burnt the iso image "ipxe.iso" into a pendrive with "Yumi".

It loads fine.

Then I execute "dhcp net0". Fine too.

Then I load my ipxe script with the following command:

chain http://69ddwrt.no-ip.org:54321/boot.ipxe

The script contains the following commands:

kernel http://69ddwrt.no-ip.org:54321/tftpboot/Boot/wimboot
initrd http://69ddwrt.no-ip.org:54321/tftpboot/Boot/bootmgr.exe          
initrd http://69ddwrt.no-ip.org:54321/tftpboot/Boot/BCD         
initrd http://69ddwrt.no-ip.org:54321/tftpboot/Boot/boot.sdi    
initrd http://69ddwrt.no-ip.org:54321/tftpboot/Boot/x86.wim 

And then...when everything looks to work after the loading wimboot message it appears:

"CPIO bad magic 
Could not extract initrd image files"

And an error code.

Could you please help me with this stuff?

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards.
