HP laptop hanging at iPXE initialising devices...

HP laptop hanging at iPXE initialising devices...
Hi All

Just compiled a fresh iPXE from scratch today using the git repository. Am using the undionly.kpxe and is working fantastic. I am using it to boot macbooks and macbook pros into our clonezilla PXE menu and imaging them over the network. Have tested in our building with a few acer servers and other machines which is working great.

One machine in particular is a HP laptop which gets stuck at the iPXE intialising devices. So far have not been able to get it booting with iPXE. If I want to boot it I use the gpxe undionly.kpe, which is working from it. However gpxe does not work with macbooks, so I have to keep changing back and forth.

Any chance you may take a look? Thanks. Would love to use iPXE only if possible.
