PXE-E23 Error BOOTx64.EFI GRUB booting is 0 bytes tftp pxe dhcp solution NBP filesize is 0 Bytes

Be very careful about what filename you specify in dhcpd.conf if you get an error like this:

NBP filesize is 0 Bytes PXE-E23: Client received TFTP error from server.

If you specify "BOOTx64.efi" then the file had better not be called "BOOTx64.EFI" as it is case sensitive.  It's really a case of the file technically not existing.

You can verify this by checking your tftp logs:

routerOS in.tftpd[169277]: RRQ from filename /BOOTx64.efi

Then check the actual name of the file:
BOOTx64.EFI  efi  EFI  grub.cfg  images  ldlinux.c32  libutil.c32  menu.c32  pxelinux.0  pxelinux.cfg  syslinux.efi

Whoops .EFI != .efi so let's fix it and then we boot OK:

mv BOOTx64.EFI BOOTx64.efi
