I would suspect an invalid boot.wim at that stage. Can you try with a vanilla one from the ADK?

I'm having real problems trying to make any headway trying to boot a
WINPE5 based ISO image with iPXE.

My iPXE script currently looks like the following:

kernel /iPXE/wimboot
initrd /Images/Autoghost4.02/contents/BOOT/BCD BCD initrd /Images/Autoghost4.02/contents/BOOT/BOOT.SDI
initrd /Images/Autoghost4.02/contents/SOURCES/BOOT/Windows/Boot/EFI/bootmgfw.efi
initrd /Images/Autoghost4.02/contents/SOURCES/BOOT.WIM

But it's failing to load the EFI loader with the error EFI_UNSUPPORTED.

Output is as follows:
Using bootmgfw.efi via 0xbb037588 len 0x14a560 ...found bootmgfw.efi file bootmgfw.efi Using BOOT.WIM via 0xbb037628 len 0xb8e75e1 ...found WIM file BOOT.WIM Using wimboot via 0xbb0376c8 len 0x8440 Read bootmgfw.efi Could not load bootmgfw.efi: 0x8000000000000003 Could not boot: Error 0x7f048281 (http://ipxe.org/7f048281)

I've also tried adding initrd line for bootmgr.efi as well, after first attempt at "boot", it fails as before, but a second attempt at "boot", I get the following:

Could not install disk block I/O protocols: 0x8000000000000014, which I believe maps to EFI_ALREADY_STARTED?

I'm really very stuck at this point :(
