Description

Boot from a network interface. iPXE will open the first specified network interface and attempt to boot from it. If booting fails, the network interface will be closed and iPXE will proceed to the next network interface in the list.

If no network interfaces are explicitly specified, iPXE will try all available network interfaces.

Command status

Failure Booting was unsuccessful

It is generally impossible for this command to return successfully, since if the boot is successful then control will not return to iPXE.
