-If you have an old version of iPXE or gPXE burned into the ROM, or you have a non-iPXE PXE ROM, it is often quite useful to "​upgrade"​ it to a version that has all the features you need during runtime. The example ISC DHCPD configuration at https://​gist.github.com/​robinsmidsrod/​4008017 shows how you can do this and make sure the version of iPXE loaded has all the features you need.+If you have an old version of iPXE or gPXE burned into the ROM, or you have a non-iPXE PXE ROM, it is often quite useful to "​upgrade"​ it to a version that has all the features you need during runtime.

 The boot system at http://​boot.salstar.sk/​ shows you how you can make iPXE boot only programs with matching checksums using the [[cmd/​imgtrust|imgtrust]] command. It also boots directly from public mirrors, like SourceForge. There is also a sophisticated example duplicating the basic feature of lspci using iPXE scripting and the [[cmd/​pciscan|pciscan]] command. The boot system at http://​boot.salstar.sk/​ shows you how you can make iPXE boot only programs with matching checksums using the [[cmd/​imgtrust|imgtrust]] command.
