Can not boot RHEL 7.3 by using iPXE

Sad RE: Can not boot RHEL 7.3 by using iPXE

I can confirm the same behavior also on non-HP UEFI hardware (Quanta / QCT). We chainload iPXE from the stock PXE firmware then call something very similar to what sspans posted. All we can see is that the initrd / vmlinuz image loads as usual, but then we only get a blinking cursor in top left of the screen (freeze). Eventually the server reboot by itself.

git log show that I compiled and executed:

I believe this is master / latest.

The exact same setup with the CentOS 7.2 vmlinuz works perfectly. Also booting a grub2 core.efi network image directly (not using iPXE) to load the same vmlinuz / initrd works (but of course, that's like going back 10 yrs in term of automation capabilities Sad )

Thanks for you help.
