Post: SNP failure when chainloading from U-Boot

Issue Using the setup below, I'm trying to chainload iPXE from U-Boot on a small ARM32 board (ODroid MC1). iPXE is able to see the SNP interface with `ifstat`, but running `ifopen net0` shows `NETDEV...

Initially I was using the Pi's built-in firmware to netboot into EDK2. But putting EDK2+iPXE directly on disk makes sense, less flaky and lets you add certs for security. I've now got iPXE almost boo...

I'm looking into the EDK2 firmware now. I was able to boot into EDK2, but it looks like the firmware expects the iPXE .efi file to be present on the SD card. I was hoping to have it netboot end-to-end...
