So having this iMac 2007 boots an ipxe.efi through Clonezilla just
fine. That iPXE is then able to successfully fetch the boot.ipxe
and menu.ipxe configuration from a server just fine, however the
ipxe.efi seems to dislike the console command:

http://fritz.nobreakspace.org/pxe/menu.ipxe... ok
Could not configure console: Error 0x7f4ce08e (http://ipxe.org/7f4ce08e)
Could not boot image: Error 0x7f4ce08e (http://ipxe.org/7f4ce08e)
No more network devices

It seems like it dislikes the following entry in the menu.ipxe:

console --picture http://fritz.nobreakspace.org/pxe/splash.png

ipxe.efi is built with CONSOLE_CMD, IMAGE_PNG, CONSOLE_SERIAL and

In the same ipxe build directory I created an undionly.kpxe and
that one is able to use the menu.ipxe with the background image on
a normal desktop PC with a 64-bit AMD Sempron just fine.

Cheers, Linus
