[ipxe-devel] [Wimboot] Injected files must be loaded before WIM file

Hi list,

I found out that when Wimboot is used with pxelinux (another bootloader), files to inject in WIM have to be loaded *before* the WIM file itself.

Working example:
COM32 linux.c32
APPEND wimboot initrdfile=startnet.cmd,bcd,boot.sdi,boot.wim

Non-working example (notice the order):
COM32 linux.c32
APPEND wimboot initrdfile=bcd,boot.sdi,boot.wim,startnet.cmd

I currently have have no iPXE environment to check that behavior against iPXE.

=> Is it a normal behavior ?
=> I would be happy to know if the result is the same when Wimboot is chained from iPXE instead of pxelinux.
