I am not using the ADK, but just copy sources/boot.wim from the Windows 
installation ISO 
and patch that with wimlib-imagex to have a custom startnet.cmd

And I think I found the issue.
It has to do with my patching.

I use a wimlib-imagex script that looks like:

delete --force /setup.exe
delete --force /Windows/System32/startnet.cmd
add /tmp/startnet.cmd /Windows/System32/startnet.cmd

However in the final 2016 release, the existing folder is no longer 
called /Windows/System32 but /windows/system32
And ipxe doesn't seem to handle the case when there is both a /Windows 
and /windows added to the .wim
Not sure whether or not it should.

Yours sincerely,

Floris Bos
