VMWare has an own/modified mboot.c32, which is capable of using
Configfiles. This mboot.c32 is on every Installsystem for their ESXi
hypervisor install-iso.
Until syslinux 4.07 this works with pxelinux out of the box.
Since 5.x this mboot.c32 will not work anymore.
There seem to be more modifications than only a parameter "-c".

Does anyone has an idea what has changed so this mboot.c32 is not
working anymore and/or how to get it working again?

Using original mboot.c32, I tried to give it all parameters which are in the
configfile, did not boot the ESXi installer.

MfG regards,
