After installing Linux (Tried CentOS7 and Debian 9.5) on UEFI machines (HP Z2 mini G3, HP Z4, HP Proliant DL380 Gen10), pxegrub2 chainload to local disk fails.

Expected outcome:
search --file --no-floppy --set=root /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI should result in a (hd?,*) device. Currently, $root is empty

Foreman and Proxy versions:
CentOS7: 1.14.3-1

Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:
CentOS7: 1.14.3-1

Other relevant data:
Steps to reproduce:

  1. Configure UEFI on target machine
  2. Install Debian on target machine
  3. boot target using Network

I've used the latest available pxegrub2_chainload template to see if the problem persists which it does.
