[syslinux] syslinux.efi with WDS

Hello there,

I'm facing a problem with syslinux in a windows WDS environment:

I run syslinux since several years like this:

Since modern computers usually boot up with EFI I recently wanted to
add EFI support to my WDS-syslinux environment, but it doesn't work:

For this I copied syslinux.efi (from Debian bullseye) to the WDS-Server
and tried to "activate" it:
wdsutil /set-server /bootprogram:boot\x64\syslinux.efi
wdsutil /set-server /N12bootprogram:boot\x64\syslinux.efi

All other files are left unchanged, so the legacy installations work

Now my UEFI-boot-client just tells me about an error during
"Windows Deployment System", error 0xc000026c

Can anyone help me to get UEFI work with WDS?

Thank you
