Many thanks indeed for this, Ian. You've made this a lot clearer for me.

bootnetx64.efi == grubnetx64.efi == pretty much all of the distributions are using Grub of some kind.

I'd seen the Red Hat document before: it proves slightly harder than it looks to get it to play nicely.

I was hoping to get something that would seamlessly boot: Debian 8, Ubuntu >= 14.04 and CentOS7.

Also not quite as easy when I tried this: CentOS7 and Ubuntu 14.04 could both work with a custom grub.cfg and
one (Ubuntu) grubnetx64.efi.signed

"Legacy" PXE is much more established than UEFI but I'm guessing we'll all have to get used to UEFI only soonest.

All the best,

Andy C
