Ok, I've done that :

Sorry but this image has ifstat followed by dhcp, we need dhcp followed by ifstat

take a picture and upload

I can't do that. When asked, I have pressed ctrl-b and I didn't go to the shell but the iMac boot to OS.

Might be a notorious EFI bug, you can press ESC followed by b to emulate ctrl-b
Also note that you can't have a embeded script, since that disables the default prompt, if it still does not work you can add a embedded script with just shell to get into the shell.

So for this case lets go with: testscript.ipxe

build with
make bin-x86_64-efi/tg3.efi EMBED=testscript.ipxe
and test the resulting bin-x86_64-efi/tg3.efi

After uploading an image of running with the above embeded script without debug, please also build and do the same with
make bin-x86_64-efi/tg3.efi DEBUG=tg3,tg3_hw,tg3_phy EMBED=testscript.ipxe

It will probably be next to unreadable due to all output, so we might need to go thru this a couple of times.

If you can it will be easier to debug if you could join #ipxe at for example via: if you don't have or want to install a client. Personally I'm mostly available from 19:00 CET
