    Change PXE ROM

    Is it possible to replace iPXE with PXELinux (or something that works like usual hardware PXE)? I already have PXE server that works perfectly and I don't want to change its configuration. But also I want to boot my VMs as physical machines. Google for an hour but with no luck.
