That would apply to a Vista or 7 "install" .iso, see here:
A PE 2.0 or 3.0 (read as VistaPE or Win7PE) does not need a virtual disk when booted locally from .iso, since it loads from the .iso the actual .wim file, when PXE booting you just serve the .wim file.
(or you can use the PXE capabilities of grub4dos to map the served .iso, but it's overkill, IMHO)
Or if you prefer, Vista comes with it's own "boot time" RAMDISK driver:

If your plan is to do PXELINUX (pxelinux.0) -> MEMDISK + your.iso, then you should understand the double-RAM requirement.
HI, I've got an .iso image of vistape...So I'd like to boot this image with pxe. I used pxelinux.0...
If, instead, you wish to do PXELINUX (pxelinux.0) -> pxechain.com + some_microsoft_nbp.0, then perhaps some_microsoft_nbp.0 could load the .WIM file natively, and avoid the double-RAM requirement.
