RE: HP laptop hanging at iPXE initialising devices...
Hi everyone just closing this thread, sorry for late reply.

Nowdays iPXE is compiling properly for the HP G42, thanks for the fix.

At the moment I am booting using the CD boot + iPXE. At some stage will try recompiling the EFI version of iPXE so I can boot from USB pen. It is slightly not needed anymore, since my original purpose was to boot clonezillla and push an image to a SMB share, since this is all possible from grub within the EFI grub.cfg file. But it would be cool to boot iPXE different ways, either USB pen or netboot method.
