According to http://ipxe.org/appnote/hardware_drivers it seems like that
card is supported by the intelx driver, so you should be good.

Be aware that the newest bootutil uses a format known as FLB to flash,
which iPXE doesn't generate. There are some posts in the forum that try
to show how you can replace a stock Intel ROM with iPXE using bootutil.
If the open-source flashrom tool works for your NIC you're probably
better off using that one.

In most cases you don't need to burn iPXE into your ROM, you can use
chainloading instead. See http://ipxe.org/howto/chainloading for details.
