The WIM in the Windows XP PE (if built with Winbuilder) does not have the same filesystem structure as regular WDS boot.wim so the answer is no. Sorry. I tried it and it didn't boot you'll get a Winload.exe error. Hope this helps

Maybe it works with the good old bootmgr/winload of Longhorn from back in 2005. That combination of files was backwards compatible to nt5.x, meaning you could boot a regular XP/2003 without ntldr, and possibly also setupldr as in WinPE.
