I'm pleased to announce that a new version of wimboot is available with 
support for UEFI.  Updated code and documentation is available at 
http://ipxe.org/wimboot along with the prebuilt binary.

If you have a working BIOS wimboot setup then all you need to do is drop 
in the updated wimboot binary, which acts as a hybrid bzImage and 64-bit 
UEFI executable.

Along with UEFI support, there are some other new features which may be 
of interest:

  - ability to use multi-image WIMs with the image selected at runtime 
via the "index=" command-line parameter

  - no need to supply a copy of bootmgr

  - no need to supply font files

Any test reports would be very welcome!

Michael
