No; ipxe.efi always includes all drivers.

The alternative is undionly.kpxe if you want to always use the firmware-provided fallback driver, or ipxe.pxe if you want to always use an iPXE native driver.

The UEFI version of iPXE has the advantage of being able to decide whether to use a native driver or a fallback driver at runtime. ipxe.efi has the capability to use either. This is a feature which is not (currently) available in the BIOS version of iPXE.


Clear, thanks.

The UEFI and BIOS are two very different beast I see, .. They both have some serious limitations in what is possible and what is not.

If, somehow I need to provide the wireless Mac to my customers, ill have to boot into Windows pe and load the Windows driver.

How often are the drivers in ipxe updated? Or isn't that on a regular basis
