That are (half) good news. Some of my computers are based on legacy
BIOS, so there is no good hope.

For the most ones (UEFI) it should work.
Can you please give me a hint about the invokation in grub.cfg?
Especially about how to define the server IP?
Man page only says that it should be possible and google mostly is about
grub legacy, so it didn't help to much.

Thank you,
