[ipxe-devel] iPXE with EFI

I was hoping you could help me, I look after a network where we run WDS on a WS2016 server, I have configured iPXE and it works great but only in legacy mode, I have tried building an EFI image along with downloading the pre-compiled or even adding our menu script to ROM-o-matic however our server never picks up the EFI file, I have set it from the DHCP server, set it using WDS-UTIL /Set-Server for both Boot Program and N12BootProgram along with the different options of X64Uefi etc. none of which is currently working.

Failing all of the this, I have even done the same configuration on a WS2008R2 box hoping with the older software the EFI might be a bit more lax and just work, however I will have the same issues.

Finally I moved onto an Ubuntu box, I have configured the static IP, and installed ISC-DHCP - my plan would be to continue using my menu system via IIS on our network which works well but I am struggling with the configuration of ISC-DHCP as soon as copy in the required settings for iPXE the DHCP server fails to start.

Is it possible for a little help, hoping more towards the WS2016 environment and getting this DHCP server to allow the clients to boot iPXE in EFI and secure boot mode. Ps we use a combination of NBI for Mac, ISO images for Linux and also WIMBOOT with our PE environment for Windows Installations.

Thank you for any help or advice.

Kind Regards
