I would like to load Memtest86 image file from PXE. Unfortunately, their ISO file on site contains old version of Memtest, which load automatically with this config:

DEFAULT menu.c32
PROMPT 0
#MENU BACKGROUND moon800.jpg
#MENU RESOLUTION 800 600
#MENU MARGIN 20

MENU TITLE In The Moon Network

LABEL memtest
MENU LABEL Memtest86 7.3
KERNEL memdisk
INITRD /iso/Memtest86-7.3.iso
APPEND iso raw
...

Is it possible to boot this image as UEFI?

    That iso contains EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI and EFI/BOOT/BOOTIA32.EFI files which in theory could be pointed at by appropriate DHCP server configuration statements plus a TFTP server... – thrig Jun 23 '17 at 15:46

As of Version 7 of Memtest, they officially support PXE boot with their Special Site License. https://www.memtest86.com/features.htm

So you won't be able to boot the image using PXE without purchasing the licence.
