I compiled an iPXE binary with the DIGEST_CMD option included as
described in http://ipxe.org/dev/drvtest/md5sum.

The output of the md5sum command looks fine compared to the test on the
boot server:

felix.mein-iserv.de ~ # md5sum /srv/tftpboot/efi64/install
577a82ef6530d4a17c651617cfdd98a2  /srv/tftpboot/efi64/install

https://community.iserv.eu/upload/pahquei9agohmeekahcesaimoiG9Eg9keathawaev5lei2ieQuaiwee3au9Avaqu/md5sum.jpg

So I guess that the file is transferred undamaged as already implied by
the byte size comparison.

Regards, Felix
