[ipxe-devel] Handling errors in scripts

I posted on the forums about a problem with iPXE scripts and error handling, but Robin ultimately suggested I try here instead.  To see the forum post and problem details, go here:

The gist of the problem is that simple error handling within iPXE scripts isn't working for me.  I've tried examples from the website, which make sense to me, but errors in the DHCP or sanboot steps of my script do not invoke the goto's or other error handling.  iPXE exits entirely back to the BIOS.

I can't tell why such simple procedures in the script are not being handled correctly.  Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this?
