That's quite a significant data point!

The iPXE .lkrn image is a BIOS image, built to expect and require a BIOS 

If you want to downgrade from BIOS to EFI, then you need to use one of 
the EFI images such as bin-x86_64-efi/ipxe.efi.  These are standard EFI 
executables.  If the patched Fedora GRUB2 can load standard EFI 
executables (such as Shell.efi), then it should be able to load ipxe.efi.
