Have you tried to updating to a newer gnu-efi ? The one included in syslinux is very old.
I have one here: https://github.com/joakim-tjernlund/syslinux

While I am here, I want to ask:
Is there a way to create a combined PXE boot img for both BIOS and EFI ?
Currently one have to use 2 different images.

Also, can one have GRUB bootable PXE img?
