[syslinux] UEFI syslinux PXE boot issues

I'm used to non-UEFI PXE boot, and I use it for my network installer 
since forever ago.

Looking up how to UEFI PXE boot, I use the syslinux.efi file and 
allthough it was loaded and stuff, nothing happend after it, I had at 
least expected the ldlinux64 to be requested from the TFTP server, but 

After searching, I noticed someone asking to test the new pre-release, 
and so I downloaded the 6.04 version. I replaced the syslinux.efi file 
only, and I got a lot more success. I symlinked the pxelinux.cfg dir and 
images so it could find the files it needed.

Then I got the prompt, I typed "install" to trigger that menu item and 
it transferred the vmlinuz file (14sec for 11MB). Then the initrd 
(47MB), which takes a long time, but does not ever show the "ok", even 
after the transfer was complete (as far as I could tell from the TFTP 
server), which takes more than a minute. after some seconds of nothing 
happening, it just reboots...

Can anyone help met out here?
