I'm thinking about creating a script that will automatically detect if a BIOS is out of date on our fleet, but I need something to pass that variable to iPXE first.

Example on how to get any data out of the smbios structures:

If i read the spec correctly you should want
${smbios/0.5.0}    # bios-version
${smbios/0.8.0}    # bios-date
