Is there a way to configure the DHCP process in iPXE? In particular, I want to configure the DHCP Discover message sent by iPXE, so that the message issued by iPXE includes more options in Parameter Request List (Option 55) for the server to replied with. Currently, only a restricted subset of options are requested, but I want more.

May be DEFINING NEW OPTIONS section of man dhcp-options is what you want? linux.die.net/man/5/dhcp-options – Bob May 15 '13 at 12:16
Sorry I was a bit unclear. But what I want is to configure iPXE to issue its DHCP discover message to include more options, so my DHCP server can give out those options in its response message. – Amumu May 15 '13 at 13:33
Sorry, can't help, never used iPXE. – Bob May 15 '13 at 15:26
