Sorry Michael.
It's my mistake.
1. Tool  name of course "wimboot" !
2. I loading boot.wim  by loader WinPE from pxeboot.n12  OPK 

This is part of my real script memu  :
#Chain Boot
set DIR BootingOS\WinPe30\x86
chain pxeboot.n12  	# Boot loader WinPE30 

# Loading from WimBoot
set DIR BootingOS\WinPe30\x86
cpuid --ext 29 && set arch amd64 || set arch x86
kernel wimboot
initrd /BootingOS/WinPe30/x86/bootmgr.exe		bootmgr.exe
initrd ${DIR}/boot/bcd                     			BCD
initrd ${DIR}/boot/boot.sdi                 			boot.sdi
initrd ${DIR}/sources/boot.wim              			boot.wim

Loading from label : PE3_Wimboot leads to error of if RAM size 4GB.   (Bootmgr.exe display error  STATUS:  0xc000000D An Unexpected error has occurred)
If RAM size 2GB , loading from label : PE3_Wimboot  is OK

Chain boot worked always
Memory modules are tested - OK
Boot.wim - custom (with drv. and  package) and in both cases (PE3_Chain  / PE3_Wimboot ) , one and the same

Best regards,Turkov Vladimir

Sorry; I can't make sense of what you are saying.  For example, there is no such thing as "wimboot.exe", and it simply isn't possible to use iPXE's "chain" command to directly chain a .wim image.

Could you please describe your problem again, making sure to describe exactly what you are doing?
