[SOLVED] : iPXE and WDS Config

RE: [SOLVED] : iPXE and WDS Config
For me this helped to get a first successfull boot - client and wds in different subnets. I want to share it:

WDS: subnet /24 [windows 2012 server]
clients in subnet [test VMs]
Linux tftp

It is little dirty but it is a base to build a menu around it:
- hit ctrl+b when iPXE starts booting
- type 2 commands:
boot wds

wds - put on root of tftp:
set user-class wds

isc dhcp:
if exists user-class and option user-class = "wds" {
        filename "boot\\x86\\";
        filename "undionly.kpxe";

I am posting this because getting to work wds from another subnet was a nightmare for me.
I also noticed that with some PXE implementations ovveriding from iPXE like:
set next-server
set dhcp/next-server
does not give any effects still try to boot from instead of

I was unable to boot wds without giving the next-server via dhcp.
I had not success trying to chainload wds with other methods.
