set wdsserver:ipv4
set net0/next-server ${wdsserver}
chain tftp://${wdsserver}/
Notice that the TFTP path uses the windows directory delimiter, \... so with iPXE, this is done as hex. I found this out via a screenshot from .

Sedorox and Sha0 ... Thank you very much for this code !! this is EXACTLY what I needed to do, it even allows me to go to instead of the regular once I change the boot loader on the WDS ! however the download speed is EXTREMELY slow on a 1GB network ... any ideas on why is this behavior ?
