I'm not familiar with your PXE product, but I'm using Microsoft's RIS to boot WinPE from an ISO. It is very easy to set up. There is good documentation on Technet. I can locate a link if you like.

If you need to get your ISO back to WIM format...

From within your PE image, you can create a WIM of it using ximage. It is not included in PE by default, so if you didn't put it there you will need to get it from a network share ore removable media...

Assuming "S" were mapped to a network share where you wanted to place the WIM...

Imagex.exe /compress fast /capture C: S:\WinPE.wim "Updated Windows PE Image" /verify

This command will capture the C: drive, compress the image, name it WinPE.WIM (saving it to the network mapped drive) and name the catalog "Updated Windows PE Image" as well as verify the image during the capture process.
