Well, the letter "b" is working just fine when typing in the config menu. My first guess was that it's a problem because this is a German keyboard, i.e. it has an additional key. (KEYBOARD_MAP is set to "de", tried with "us" - no change.) But then there would've been more weird effects, I think.

Yup. Compiled it with "make bin/undionly.kpxe" without any other parameter. And the prompt shows up after the feature list.

EDIT: Tested it with the prompt command. And funny enough: Ctrl-B seems to be dead to iPXE. However, Ctrl-A (0x01) works just fine, so does Ctrl-C (0x03). I don't know what Acer did to this thing.

EDIT2: I FOUND IT! Seems like Ctrl-B is some kind of magic key or whatever. BUT: If I press Ctrl-Fn-B, it is recognised by iPXE. The Fn-key seems to map the key from "magic" back to normal. Stupid Acer.
