Hi Sven,

Thank you for the info.

All I want to do is use pxe to download and install and O/S image (ESXi) but I 
can't seem to do that.

You do not need to load undionly.kpxe AND ipxe.krn. One of them is enough. The 
ipxe.krn file just looks like a linux kernel to the bootloader (hence the name).

Instead of trying to load ipxe.krn, you should directly try to boot the desired 
linux kernel (or a script which loads the initrd and the kernel).

Hope this helps,
