Thanks Oliver.
I flashed my ipxe-binary, compiled with the build option NET_PROTO_IPV6.
What do I need to do now, in order to get the ipxe to boot (or even get an IP) over IPv6 protocol?

Hi Wissam,

there is no official standard yet for pxe-booting over IPv6. So you have to look into your Bios for IPv6-pxe-availability and configure it for loading a i.e. undionly.kpxe-file via IPv6 over tftp.

Then you can proceed with ipxe in the new IPv6-way.

If your network cards supports flashing an ipxe-binary, you can try generating a bootrom for your card.

Hth,
Oliver
