Bumping this topic as I hope we can get this fixed. Unfortunately I don't know much about about NIC registers yet but I am willing to dive in and learn if you could give me some advice on where to start reading. Code, books, URLs or just keywords that I can look up would be great. In case you already have some code that we could run on two different Macs to dump the NIC registers that would be awesome.

Did you get in contact with Apple yet. Maybe they have a general idea on what has changed that could break PXE booting (link state up).

Just found this by accident. Might be related.

Thanks in advance!
