This issue is also hit on RH8.2 and 8.1. It is all right on iPXE on 21th July git pull. I also find RH8.3 is good on the recently iPXE build.

I still hit the same issue. The procedure is hang at Shutting down if firmware services... Using 'simple offset' UEFI RTS mapping policy I am sure the ipxe.efi is compiled from the latest code.

When I use the latest iPXE release - v1.20.1, I hit system fails to boot into iPXE menu. It looks it only happen once I enable DMAr in BIOS. Dose iPXE support DMAr already?
