OK, scratch that. The "PXE" string is the default prompt.

Most likely, as far as I can see, there must be at least one pxe-service 
config line, for with a CSA which doesn't match the machine you're PXE 
booting. (You're booting an EFI system, so maybe there's something starting


which won't provide a bootable image to an EFI system.)

If there really isn't such a line, then there's a bug in the code which 
I can't see from inspection.

A workaround, will be to use full PXE and provide a correct pxe-service 
line, something like


But note that the PXE system will add ".0" to the filename, so the file 
on the TFTP server should be renamed
