I have certainly gotten a large number of reports about this particular
PXE stack and motherboard combo.  This kind of problem usually are
caused by the PXE stack writing to memory it does not own (that is
particularly so with the "works with CLI, but not with menu.")  That
isn't the only possibility, but is certainly the strongest.

If there is a previous version which works, it would be highly useful to
narrow down the exact point of regression.  If there isn't, it is
harder, of course.
