If I download the ipxe.pxe file from and use that, I can see iPXE 1.0.0+ (7405). I actually see a revision number, am I being dumb here, or is this an issue when you compile with an embeeded script?

The revision number will be present only if you built from a git checkout using e.g.

git clone git://

If you are building from a tarball, then no version control information is available and so the revision number will not be included within the binary.

Hope that helps,
