With UEFI you need to build the UEFI binary (snponly.efi) and point the UEFI systems to boot it when booting iPXE. In addition to that you will need to pass the initrd=initrd.img file on the kernel command line for UEFI systems to boot. 

initrd ${centos_6_initrd} || goto failed 
chain ${centos_6_vmlinuz} method=${centos_6_install_method} ip=dhcp ksdevice=bootif dhcptimeout=240 initrd=initrd.img || goto failed 
boot || goto failed
