UEFI Network Boot: loop and exec format error

RE: initrd
Quote:You may have a syntax error; if you are invoking the initrd with vmlinuz you need to specify you are using initrd loaded into memory: UEFI is ~really~ picky about explicitly specifying the initrd in the vmlinuz arguments. PCBIOS would "figure it out", but in UEFI, it just craps out and panics the vmlinuz kernel when vmlinuz attempts to locate the initrd.img; vmlinuz doesn't have a network stack yet, so this is crucial.

Thank you for bringing that up. I struggled with that a little bit.
