We kinda need more flexible PXE in Prague office, UEFI would also not hurt - so lets check what we can do to make it better.

EDIT (ggherdovich): I've just learned that Tomaš Hehejik is working on UEFI netboot as well. I've been studying the documentation for a few days now (and Martin Čaj gave me access to the DHCP server), I'll post here some links.

      Together with Martin Čaj we're already looking at enabling UEFI netboot in the Prague office network, and I was thinking of turning this effort into a hackweek project. Happy to join yours!

      May be overkill for your internal needs, at least for now, but ideally you'd be implementing PXE/UEFI netboot with one of the toolchains that we are also selling to customers (Cobbler in SUSE Manager and soon an OpenStack Ironic-based stack).
