boot.wim files (the WinPE that is initially booted to from an ISO or MDT, etc. when deploying an image) are typically 300-800MB in size. They typically run Setup.exe which is used to deploy a second much larger install.wim file to a target system.
The large install.wim is not usually bootable and contains a copy of the OS files that you want to install onto the target device.
All bootable .wim files are always loaded into memory as the X: drive. You cannot boot the install.wim type of file with E2B or MDT or Microsoft bootmgr+BCD because it is not intended to be bootable.
