I tried that and I get the following - the menu displays and I select Memtest

then I get the following output:

http://.../memtest/memtest.img. ok
. Error 0x3d008001 (http://ipxe.org/3d008001)
Could not fetch http://.../menu.c32: Error 0x3d008001 (http://ipxe.org/3d008001)
Could not chain image: Error 0x3d008001 (http://ipxe.org/3d008001)
No more network devices

Any ideas what is going wrong?

Create boot.ipxe:

chain http://your.webserver/menu.c32 http://your.webserver/menu.cfg

Create a menu.cfg in the syslinux/pxelinux menu style. Add entries like these:

LABEL esxi
  KERNEL http://your.webserver/installesxi.ipxe
LABEL memtest
  MENU LABEL Memory Test
  KERNEL http://your.webserver/memtest.img

As you can see, you can load further iPXE scripts (the installesxi.ipxe).

Put boot.ipxe, menu.c32, menu.cfg, memtest.img and installesxi.ipxe to your 
webserver root directory.

Configure your DHCP server to hand out "http://your.webserver/boot.ipxe" as boot 
file name.

Regards, Sven
