iPXE for UEFI boot

Question iPXE for UEFI boot
I have many new computers with UEFI. I'd like to deploy Win8.1 to them and tried this with WDS running on Win2008R2. The problem is this works only when I PXE boot from Legacy bios (in Win2012 it is possible with UEFI, but I don't have it). Is it possible to UEFI boot to iPXE and deploy Win8.1 images? If so, what is the quickest way to achieve it?
I have a DHCP serwer on my Cisco router:
next-server 172.xx.xx.xx <- current WDS server (Win2008R2)
option 67 ascii "Boot\x64\"
how should I change current setting that they will work with iPXE?

RE: iPXE for UEFI boot
UEFI support in iPXE is still a work-in-progress, so I would not depend on it on production to replace WDS. If you're willing to tinker there is some support, but it is incomplete still, and there are bugs. I suggest you read over the various commits with efi tag that has been completed the last year or so.
