Description Tomohide Ishimaru 2018-04-09 09:40:18 UTC
I used pre-built ipxe.efi for EFI-based pxe chainloading with dnsmasq+qemu(x86_64)+ovmf. 
Transferring file by tftp had succeeded, but ipxe.efi had not worked.
I compiled ipxe locally, used it instead of pre-built one, and then it worked fine.
I think pre-built one is x86 format compiled with BIN=bin-efi option. My locally build is compiled with BIN=bin-x86_64-efi.
