Might work if the problem clients use an own group of MAC addresses.

Snippet from DHCPD.conf:

# special MAC area – sends a different file if the first three MAC bytes match 00:60:e0
            class "special Boards" {
                match if (substring(hardware, 1, 3)= 00:60:e0);
                option tftp-server-name "";
                filename "/ipxe/ipxe.pxe";

mit freundlichen Grüßen
with kind regards

You might also want to try to use ipxe.pxe instead of undionly.kpxe if
there is native drivers for your nic available in ipxe that is. (I'm
assuming you are using undionly.kpxe based on the output)

I tried using ipxe.pxe, i was able to successfully boot this box. So the problem seems to be at the ROM.
I have following question,

How do i configure DHCPD so that i serve ipxe.pxe just to this type of hardware?

If i have to completely switch to ipxe.pxe, one hardware i might have trouble booting is probably the
EMULEX NIC, i do not see b2net driver (used by emulex nics) in there http://ipxe.org/appnote/hardware_drivers
Are they supported?
