I was able to PXE boot mine this morning into iPXE (w/EFI support ) and 
then chain into Fedora 20 without any issues.

I admit I know very little about EFI and haven't touched it since the 
Itanium days.

Looking at the graphical bios, I can add a boot option and the network 
card is definitely one of the choices.

My board even came with a EFI Network boot option already enabled.
