​​​​I'm using GRUB4DOS 0.4.6a 2013-11-30

​I'm trying to boot a winpe32 (win10PESE) via PXE+wimboot (no UEFI)

​testing is beeing done in a Virtualbox VM

this is my grldr menu:

title BootMgr (WimBoot)
    kernel /wimboot
    initrd /{wim}/bootmgr
    initrd /{wim}/boot.sdi
    initrd /{wim}/memdisk
    initrd /{wim}/bcd
    initrd /{wim}/win10pese32.wim
 

​* secureboot is off (no integrity checks)

​everything went fine, all files load into memory

​until the last file (win10pese.win) starts loading and aborts at 70%

​tested with a non-touch 'boot.wim' from windows 7 and other from windows 10

​and get the same result at 90%

​Any ideas ?

Two issues:

1. Too old grub4dos version.

2. Wrong usage of initrd. Should use one initrd command with several arguments.
