Lenovo Drive Erase Utility + UEFI + IPXE

I cannot seem to get this utility to boot properly under IPXE. Can someone give me some pointers to see if we can get this to work?

Here is the tool:

It comes with an EFI version in the zip folder, including a bootx64.efi and DrvErase.exe

If I put these files onto a USB (/EFI/BOOT/BootX64.efi + /DrvErase.exe) I can successfully boot the USB in UEFI mode on Lenovo devices.

However, if I try to load the bootx64.efi and drvload.exe files via IPXE, it never works. Generally I get a black screen after the files load and nothing shows on the screen, but control alt delete will reboot the machine. I suspect bootx64.efi has loaded but drverase.exe is unable to execute as it is an exe format, but somehow this works off a USB stick?

I tried to also make an ISO of the files, but SANBOOT does not like to boot it at all.

Any guidance is appreciated!
