Strange problem chaining ipxe krn from vesamenu.c32
My issue is when chaining from the vesamenu.c32 menu the boot file download stalls unexpectedly usually on the last line "initrd boot64.wim" - it gets to x% then just stops.

Can anyone shed any insight?

If I break out to the iPXE prompt and chain Wimboot.ipxe directly everything works fine.

DEFAULT vesamenu.c32

PROMPT 0

MENU TITLE Windows Boot Menu
MENU INCLUDE pxelinux.cfg/graphics.conf

kernel wimboot
initrd bootmgr bootmgr
initrd bcd BCD

The issue was the VMXNET 3 driver in our ESX 4.1 environment.
