Booting undionly.kkpxe --> pxelinux.0 (syslinux 4.06) for menu --> ipxe.lkrn --> .ipxe with wimboot kernel (maybe not the most efficient?)

HTTP download speed is beyond tragic, 450 Mb wim (that takes less then 5 sec on Realtek, it takes over 5 min on I217)

Can this be improved in any way (what would I need to do)?

In drivers/net/intel.c, you'll see some PCI_ROM() lines that include INTEL_NO_PHY_RST. This is a workaround for this issue.

Try adding INTEL_NO_PHY_RST to the relevant PCI_ROM() lines for your NIC and see if that fixes the problem. If it does, please send a patch to
