I have had a VMware ESXi network boot setup for quite some time now.
After upgrading from 4.06 to 5.01 (or 5.10-pre3) the network boot fails with the following error:
--- snip ---
Failed to load COM32 file esxi/5.1.0/mboot.c32
--- snip ---

This error is seen for the ESXi bootup only.
The default mboot.c32 from syslinux itself doesn't work and this setup has been working with Syslinux 4.06.
