Unfortunately I have no idea which binary was used, I was left with no documentation :/ I dont even know what the embedded script was which is wonderful.
There are ways to get it back - but not easy.

For context we are chain booting ipxe from grub2 using foreman. Is it possible to just pass the following as a parameter:
chainloader /ipxe.efi chain http://server/boot.ipxe
passing cmdline arguments to iPXE efi are not currently supported.

make bin-x86_64-efi/ipxe.efi EMBED=boot.ipxe

Yes, but make sure the script that you embed has dhcp in it, since that isn't done when you embed script. (iPXE without embeded script escentially runs the iPXE autoboot command)

Got it working using the embedded script. I have an issue with a specific piece of hardware right now but ill open another thread for that as its entirely different. Thank you again for your help!
