Hello! I'm building ROM images but I have to know first my PCI device no. How will I locate that?

Use e.g. a Linux installation and run lspci to figure out which device is your network card. Then do lspci -n -s <busid> to find out the PCI vendor/device IDs.

Just remember that you can only burn a ROM if you have an external PCI(e) card. If your network card is on the motherboard then the ROM for it is located inside your BIOS and you'll need to patch your BIOS to make things work. That is quite risky and you might brick your motherboard if you make mistakes. It is usually much safer to just use chainloading to load iPXE using the already available PXE firmware. See http://ipxe.org/howto/chainloading for more details.
