i think the bootmgr.exe should be located in the 'tftp root',
not in 'tftp root\Boot'

what TFTP server do you use?
generally: if you use linux TFTP server to boot WinPE, then to use a remap file is mandatory,
on linux it is possible to place 'tftp root\Boot\bootmgr.exe' but in this case also this should defined in the remap file

do you mean bootmgr.exe?
(PXE boot needs the file called 'bootmgr.exe'
not that file what called 'bootmgr' without extension)

do you use a TFTP server on linux box?
for me all folder and files are in lowercase, except the file 'BCD' is uppercase, i use 'tftp root/boot/BCD'
for me bootmgr.exe is in the /boot folder ('tftp root/boot/bootmgr.exe')
my remap file looks like this:
re ^bootmgr\.exe boot/bootmgr.exe
r ^\\Boot\\ boot/
r ^\\boot\\ boot/
rg \\ /

if i want to use the pxeboot.n12 instead of pxelinux.0,
then in dhcpd.conf using:
filename "\\boot\\pxeboot.n12";
does work
