Have you read through this as well? https://ipxe.org/crypto
"In the default configuration, iPXE trusts only a single root
certificate: the "iPXE root CA" certificate. [...] iPXE will therefore
automatically trust the same set of certificates as the Firefox web
browser. If you want more control over the chain of trust ..."

> initrd https://pxeboot.myhost.net/preseed.cfg

I reckon you use a self signed certificate on that server? Then you'd
need to include that on compilation time:

make TRUST=/path/to/CAcert.pem CERT=/path/to/CAcert.pem ...
