wimboot is a boot loader for Windows Imaging Format (.wim) files.
It enables you to boot into a Windows PE (WinPE) deployment or recovery environment.
You can use wimboot with iPXE to boot Windows PE via HTTP.
With a Gigabit Ethernet network, a typical WinPE image should download in just a few seconds.
Extract BCD, boot.sdi, and standard boot font files automatically from the .wim image.
Use paging and Physical Address Extensions (PAE) to place the initrd above 4GB if possible, thereby allowing larger .wim images to be used on BIOS systems (sponsored by Digital Intelligence).
Enable stack protection for both BIOS and UEFI builds.
Tidy up debug output that typically disrupts the loading screen progress bar.
Add quiet command-line option to inhibit all debug output (sponsored by 2Pint Software).
Create fully automated tests of an HTTP boot via iPXE and wimboot into multiple versions of Windows.
Migrate from Travis CI to GitHub actions.
