Hello Oliver,

Isn't ipxe.usb just a disk image that loads ipxe.lkrn from syslinux?
That would make sense to me, as I believe that ipxe.iso does the same
with isolinux.

So I'd venture the guess... any UEFI bootloader that will load an lkrn
image and is cross-signed by Microsoft should do the trick.  I recall
reading that syslinux was to be one such bootloader... but light
googling didn't yield much info for me :P
