I used the following config:

DEFAULT AutoInstall

LABEL debug_module
    PATH /lib/efi64
    COM32 debug.c32
    APPEND -e pxe_call

LABEL AutoInstall
   KERNEL http://server.oecs.at/vmlinuz64
   APPEND initrd=http://server.oecs.at/initrd64.img root=live:http://server.oecs.at/LiveOS/squashfs.img quiet lang=en keymap=de-latin1 systemd.unit=rescue.target system.unit=rescue.target system.unit=rescue.target

At the first boot prompt I entered 'debug_module' and after that was loaded 'AutoInstall'.
But I got no debug infos nor other additional infos. Few seconds after I pressed enter the VMWare crashed as before.
