UEFI network boot

Does fog allow you to boot into the imaging system with UEFI boot instead of legacy Pxe? I have a brand new Dell Latitude 5401 that i need to capture an image of, Dell has removed that option for legacy boot from the bios. In the past i’ve tried to network boot into Fog with UEFI and nothing happens. Is there a setting or module that needs to be loaded?
Your dhcp server needs to send the boot file name ipxe.efi for uefi based systems and undionly.kpxe for bios based systems.
If this is just a one off system you can manage dhcp option 67 by hand. If you want it to automatically adjust based on the target computer there are instructions here as long as your dhcp server is windows 2012 or newer or linux based: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/BIOS_and_UEFI_Co-Existence#Using_Windows_Server_2012_.28R1_and_later.29_DHCP_Policy
