Than you can use "disk read ..." etc. to load the image into RAM, and use
standard commands like imi or bootm.

bootm has nothing to do with it. "bootm" is - as the name suggests  -
a  command to boot an image that is in _m_memory. You use a different
command to load the image to memory, like loads or tftp or  disk  (or
even "eeprom read" :-)
