Managed to get a better resolution, but I still think it "feels" better without FB for our Linux installmenu (which uses iPXE).

But I have a question regarding pictures. How to "get" pictures when "inside" iPXE? Use the kernel/initrd/module command to download from http server, or build iPXE image with a picture inside?

Use the --picture (or -p) option to the console command. For example:

console -p

If you don't specify a resolution, it will be chosen automatically based on the picture size. For now only PNM (.pbm/.pgm/.ppm) images are supported; PNG will be added soon. You need to enable IMAGE_PNM in config/general.h.
