ipxe.efirom booting with HP servers
Hi,

I am working on HP servers with a custom ipxe.efirom. I am observing that during the boot process my option rom get loaded but when its just about to boot the system sometime hangs while enumerating the boot devices.
This is being observed in both legacy and uefi boot modes. I am currently working in legacy mode. This is also happening intermittently so some time it works and some it fails. When it does work my remove function gets called, but when the system hangs i dont see any removes.
I want to know if someone can point out what process calls the driver_remove for me please.

RE: ipxe.efirom booting with HP servers
sounds like the normal, something in efi firmware is buggy and refuses to let iPXE release any current users.
But since you are using efirom, that should probably be iPXE itself.

Read FAQ before first post!
Are relevant ipxe.org error urls and PCIIDs included?

Can you tell me which file would be responsible for calling the remove driver in legacy mode.

I was also wondering why it would only works sometimes and also i remove my rom then the boot proceeds normally.
