Thanks for the suggestion, just forced the syslinux32.efi via the
isc-dhcpd config, but then I get the following error instead:

Could not boot image: Exec format error (http://ipxe.org/2e008081)

So looks like it disagrees with the 32-bit one even more, looks
like a 64-bit one is the one to go, right?

Cheers, Linus

PS: Booting a 64-bit grub.efi (grub 2.02~beta2-22) from the
Debian-Installer works fine (bootnetx64.efi:
But an empty grub is a little boring and I would prefer being able
to only having to configure one pxelinux without needing a
grub/grub.cfg layer if that's possible.
