[ipxe-devel] wimboot hang

Wimboot is hanging on boot in a hyper-v VM. The screen it stops at says:

Get parameters: C/H/S = 1024/255/63, drives = 1
Get disk type: sectors = 0xff80040, type = 3
Extensions installation check
Get Extended parameters: C/H/S = 1024/255/63, sectors = 0xfff80040 (512 bytes)
Get parameters: C/H/S = 1024/255/63, drives = 1

The reported number of sectors would be correct if the VM had a disk attached, but it doesn't so I'm a little curious as to why it thinks there is, unless wimboot fakes a 127GB disk too?

Any idea why it might be hanging? I have windbg running and windbg reports that it gets as far as "Boot Debugger Initialized".
