What is your end goal?
There is no directory structure supported by wimboot (well there is,
but you can't affect it since it is magic, see provided links)
And also any injected file is just copied to system32 - without any
structure available.
for initrd, there is no way for it to load multiple files - maybe it
would be possible on FTP or NFS, but there is no directory listing
support in TFTP or HTTP so that would mostly be unused code - as such
you will have to list files one by one that you want to load.
