Hi Geert,

iPXE script.
> I did read the ||  as "or" and did ignore it.

Yeah, that's correct. I don't remember the exact reason why I added the
|| , but it seems to prevent iPXE from exiting immediately if an error
like the "Exec format error" one occurs. If remove trailing || from the
commands, iPXE just hands over the control over the boot process to the
firmware after the error is raised by the boot command.

> How does iPXE script of OP behave without those  ||?

Exactly the same behavior as before except for that the subsequently
commands also complaining about the exec format error with the same message.
