Thanks for sending that!

If you try typing the command at the command line instead of using a script, 
you'll discover that the sanboot command is *not* leading directly to the 
INT18 error that you are seeing.  What happens is that the sanboot command 
fails, causing the script to exit, which is equivalent to typing "exit".  This 
is why you are getting a puzzling result.

The underlying problem is my mistake: the command should be

  sanboot --no-describe --drive 0x80

as stated in the documentation at http://ipxe.org/cmd/sanboot

Also, could you please send plain-text mails rather than HTML?  (As you can 
see from the part of the message that I quoted above, it is quite difficult to 
read HTML-mangled e-mails.)
