RE: iPXE EFI booting ISOs
Image booting uses INT13 which is BIOS only.
EFI have other mechanisms, however that is not implemented yet in ipxe.

First of you should as much as possible extract kernels etc instead of loading isos, for memtest, there is even memtest.0 which is a NBP and can return to ipxe when done instead of rebooting.

but memtest is legacy only and can never run in a efi environment.

dban can run the kernel directly, _if_ it is compiled with EFI_STUB enabled.
