Right missed the secure boot part, sorry.
Still tho, I'm assuming that works fine with the shim demo.
Do you have anything specific in mind? The only part that is disabled in -sb builds are NFS and Wifi stuff http://git.ipxe.org/ipxe.git/commitdiff/7428ab7

GRUB or GRUB2 ~can~ be used with a local disk or when a HBA with a built-in iSCSI initiator is used, but in the case of PXE/iPXE-based SAN-Booting with a Software ISCSI initiator, GRUB is useless because it doesn't have the ability to mount an iSCSI LUN or have a network stack.

Not relevant since it doesn't need to know anything about it. All is done via EFI block interface which iPXE provides.
My memory might be failing me, but quite sure that http://lists.ipxe.org/pipermail/ipxe-dev...05291.html was to be able to refer to grubx64.efi
Hmm grub.efi is also in the example: http://ipxe.org/cmd/sanboot

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