[ipxe-devel] Trouble with KVM/QEMU/VirtIO VMs

Hi all -

I have attempted to follow the instructions on making a custom image for
chainloading iPXE. However, when my VM downloads the image and loads it, it
has no networking device available to it, like the image doesn't have the
virtio net driver or something.

I've attempted to build undionly.kpxe with an ipxe script like so:

`make bin/undionly.kpxe EMBED=menu.ipxe`

I've also attempted to build ipxe.kpxe:

`make bin/ipxe.kpxe EMBED=menu.ipxe`

I've also attempted to build a new QEMU ipxe ROM and replace the stock one
that comes installed in CentOS 7 (in /usr/share/ipxe):

`make -C ./ bin/1af41000.rom EMBED=menu.ipxe`

But still, same issue, no network connectivity. What am i doing wrong?
