Hi All,

I worked around it at the time, because CentOS 7 wasn't critical to me yet. But I'm back there now. Am building latest (as of today) iPXE from source, including 64 bit ipxe.efi module.

On an HP G8 box (BIOS), I'm able to boot as expected, using the "vmlinuz" and "initrd.img" files provided at (just an example).

On an HP G9 box (UEFI), the kernel boots but ultimately comes crashing down in the usual manner:

No filesystem could mount root, tried:
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

Am going to swap in a different kernel and drivers to see if that makes any difference, will report back.
