[ipxe-devel] uncompressed (patchable) image?

would it be easily possible to create non-zbin bootable images (rom, iso,
usb or dsk)?

i was thinking of having a script as an embedded image, and having
placeholders in it that could be "patched" with the desired values just in

alas, the compression gets in the way of easily patching the values in...
but the fact that my dsk image takes only 80kB out of 1440 available makes
me wonder if i couldn't do without the compression :-)

thank you!
